It’s always scary when gravity gets the best of someone of advanced age, such as America's sweetheart, the beloved Bob Barker. It’s even more scary when a 91-year-old has to be hospitalized.

But the former game show host is going to be okay, thanks to the quick action of nearby LAPD officers, who were responding to a call Wednesday morning when they saw Barker trip on a sidewalk near his Hollywood Hills home.

According to TMZ, the cops administered first aid until paramedics arrived to treat Barker for the 1 1/2-inch laceration on the side of his forehead. According to People, Barker is said to be in stable condition after suffering minor injuries, including a hurt knee.

The TV icon is “resting at home and doing okay” after a quick trip to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, his rep told Entertainment Tonight.

Barker’s main concern now? “He works out every day and is disappointed that he’ll have to take a little break until he heals,” the spokesperson said.
