Barbara Walters hospitalized after fall at inauguration party
She was injured, with a cut on her forehead. "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," says ABC News in a statement. "Barbara is alert (and telling everyone what to do), which we all take as a very positive sign."
Walters will not be covering President Barack Obama's Inauguration celebration on Monday. Obama and VP Joe Biden were officially sworn into office on Sunday morning .
