(AP) Veteran ABC newswoman Barbara Walters has fallen at an inauguration party in Washington and has been hospitalized.

ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider says the 83-year-old Walters fell Saturday night on a step at the residence of Britain's ambassador to the United States, Peter Westmacott. The fall left Walters with a cut on her forehead.

Schneider said Sunday out of an abundance of caution Walters went to a hospital for treatment of the cut and for a full examination.

He says Walters is alert and telling everyone what to do, which is a very positive sign.

It's unclear when Walters might be released from the hospital, which ABC hasn't identified.
