Joe Biden Takes a Tumble [Video]
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1788: US Constitution comes into effect when New Hampshire is the 9th state to ratify it.
President Joe Biden took a tumble off his bike during his weekend trip to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
The 79-year-old commander-in-chief was finishing a bike ride with first lady Jill Biden when he pedaled toward a nearby crowd.
Video of the incident shows Biden coming to a stop and trying to dismount the bike when his foot apparently gets caught in the pedal. Biden then falls to the ground in front of the group of onlookers, who audibly gasped.
Secret Service agents quickly swooped in and helped Biden to his feet.
The White House later released a statement saying Biden was “fine” and did not require medical attention.
Biden’s “foot got caught on the pedal while dismounting, and he is fine,” the statement said. “No medical attention is needed. The President looks forward to spending the rest of the day with his family.”
