Joy Behar, the oldest co-host on ABC's The View, nearly fractured her hip when she fell off a swivel chair and landed on the floor.
The incident happened at the start of Thursday's show, as Behar sat down but the chair swiveled away from her, causing her to fall on her right side.
Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sarah Haines, Sunny Hostin and the production crew rushed to help her up. Behar laughed off the incident, but she seemed shaken.
"25 years, that has never happened - who do I sue?!" she joked as she sat down.
Behar compared her experience to the late comic Bob Saget, who died after he fell and hit his head in an Orlando hotel room.
"The main thing - just to talk seriously - when Bob Saget fell, he died," Behar said.
"If you hit your head, and you feel dizzy, or you have blurred vision, or you feel like you want to go to sleep, go to the doctor. Because that will kill you," she said.
She added "I'm a klutz."
Sunny Hostin called the swivel chairs "deadly."
Over 300,000 people — age 65 and older — are hospitalized each year for hip fractures.
The incident happened after Behar was widely criticized for complaining that the Russia/Ukraine war was preventing her from going on vacation in Italy.
"You plan a trip, you want to go there, I've wanted to go to Italy for four years, and I haven't been able to make it because of the pandemic and now this. It's like, what's gonna happen there?"

Employee working conditions are reportedly so demanding at Amazon that some delivery drivers are forced to pee in bottles.
The working conditions and physical demands of the job don't leave much time for bathroom breaks or rest periods, according to driver complaints.
Amazon CEO Dave Clark welcomed Sen. Bernie Sanders' upcoming visit to an Amazon fulfillment center in Bessemer, Alabama on Friday, March 26, where employees will vote on whether to form a union.
"...if you want to hear about $15 an hour and health care, Senator Sanders will be speaking downtown. But if you would like to make at least $15 an hour and have good health care, Amazon is hiring," Clark tweeted.
But Rep. Mark Pocan, a Democratic congressman from Wisconsin, criticized Clark.
"Paying workers $15 [an] hour doesn't make you a 'progressive workplace' when you union-bust [and] make workers urinate in water bottles," Pocan said on Wednesday night.
Clark hopped into the comments on Twitter and denied "the peeing in bottles thing."
"You don't really believe the peeing in bottles thing, do you? If that were true, nobody would work for us."
But an Amazon driver responded in the comments by posting a photo of urine-filled bottles.
"We're pressured to get these routes done before night time and having to find a restroom would mean driving an extra 10 minutes off path to find one," an Amazon delivery driver told Motherboard. "Ten to fifteen minutes to find a bathroom can add up, meaning 20 to 30 minutes there and back all together."
Another Amazon driver in Florida confirmed:
"All the guys do it... The best drivers get overtime so there's incentive to cut corners. The most productive drivers get rewarded the most hours."
Genea Sky, the Dallas stripper who fell 20 feet from a stripper pole and fractured her jaw, had reconstructive surgery, thanks to $32,000 in donations to her GoFundMe account.
Sky suffered a broken jaw when she fell off the pole while entertaining a packed house at the XTC Cabaret in Dallas. But, she got up and continued twerking, because a working girl has bills to pay.
Some skeptics doubted Sky injured herself during the fall, so she posted an image of herself giving a thumbs up from her hospital bed.
"Today has been a very long day. My surgery went well," Sky wrote in an Instagram post on Monday. "My jaw is currently wired shut so please refrain from calling me as of right now and bare with me on replies because my phone hasn't stopped blowing up."
Earlier, Sky thanked her fans after the video of her fall went viral.
"Originally I didn't plan on posting about this situation at all," she said in a YouTube video. "But obviously the video has gone viral and I'm getting a lot of messages asking me if I'm ok. I pretty much broke my jaw and I have to have surgery on it [on Monday]," she said. "Aside from that, I'm good."
