Breaking News

Barbara Walters
was taken to a hospital Saturday night after cutting her head following a fall, but is alert and doing well.

Walters was visiting the British Ambassador’s residence when she fell on a stair and cut her forehead.

Jeffrey W. Schneider, senior vice president of ABC News, tells POLITICO, "Out of an abundance of caution, she went to the hospital to have her cut tended to, have a full examination and remains there for observation. Barbara is alert (and telling everyone what to do), which we all take as a very positive sign."
