(SIMI VALLEY, Calif.) -- Former First Lady Nancy Reagan slipped Tuesday night as she arrived for a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, but a quick reaction from Florida Sen. Marco Rubio kept Reagan on her feet.
Reagan, 90, was walking to her chair, accompanied by the Florida senator, when the cane she was holding in her right hand lost its grip on the floor and she slipped and nearly fell. Rubio grabbed hold of the former first lady’s left arm and, with the assistance of others, kept her from hitting the ground.
