Nancy Reagan takes a tumble, Marco Rubio comes to her rescue



It was business as usual for Nancy Reagan on Tuesday (Aug. 23) when she arrived at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library to deliver a speech -- until her cane slipped and the 90-year-old former first lady tumbled towards the terra firma.

Luckily, quick-handed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) was close by and quickly caught Reagan before she hit the ground.

A spokeswoman for the library tells CNN that Reagan was not injured.

"She's just fine. Our aisles were crowded and she tripped on a stanchion, but recovered quickly, and we started the program on time," said Melissa Giller, a spokeswoman for the library.
