Veteran US reporter Barbara Walters hospitalised
WASHINGTON (AFP) - The veteran American television reporter Barbara Walters has been hospitalised after falling and hitting her head, her employer ABC News said on Sunday.
"Barbara Walters fell on a stair (Saturday) evening while visiting the British Ambassador's residence and the fall left her with a cut on her forehead," ABC News senior vice-president Jeffrey Schneider said.
"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," he said in a statement.
"Barbara is alert - and telling everyone what to do - which we all take as a very positive sign."
