BARBARA Walters‘ doctors were concerned she may have suffered a potentially deadly brain injury.
The TV legend had doctors fearing for her health after she was severely injured in a terrifying fall at a pre-inauguration party.
Walaters, 83, tumbled down the stairs at the home of British Ambassador Peter Westmacott in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 19, knocking her unconscious and leaving her covered in blood from a gaping wound on her forehead. She was rushed by ambulance to a local hospital, where she was held so that doctors could monitor her for life-threatening complications from the injury.
A partygoer who witnessed the frightening fall said Barbara was “lucky she wasn’t killed.”
“She hadn’t been drinking,” a source told the National Enquirer.
“But it was her fault because she’s stubborn and wouldn’t let anyone escort her down the steps. When someone tried to hold her arm to steady her, she got angry and snatched her arm away. And that’s when she missed a step and fell headfirst down the stairs. She didn’t even put her hands out to stop the fall. It was awful.
“She landed with a sickening thump at the bottom of the stairs. She could have broken her neck or hip. Instead, she hit her forehead and was knocked unconscious. She was covered in blood.
“I thought she was dead!”
