Anytime an 80-year-old falls it causes concern… When the 80-year-old is the President of the United States, it obviously causes even more worry.

Thursday, Biden was in Colorado Springs for the United States Air Force graduation where he was the commencement speaker.

In a video at the ceremony, Biden shakes the hands of one of the cadets who received their diploma and appears to trip over a black sandbag and fall onto the stage. He is then helped up by at least three Air Force officials.

The president appeared to be OK and stayed through the end of the ceremony.
