    President  Biden took a tumble Saturday morning while cycling outside of his vacation home in the Rehoboth Beach, Delaware-area – appearing to have fallen on his hip after briefly coming to a stop in front of onlookers. 

    The video of the fall, in Cape Henlopen State Park, went viral on social media almost immediately after it was posted.

     

    Biden quickly got up after the incident, which occurred at about 9 a.m. The White House says the 79-year-old president was uninjured. 

    "As the president said, his foot got caught on the pedal while dismounting and he is fine," a White House official told media. "No medical attention is needed. The president looks forward to spending the rest of the day with his family."
