American news broadcasters aired the incident.
The 78-year-old American leader arrived by helicopter from the White House to the Andrews military base in Maryland. There, presidential air Force one was waiting for him. The head of state tried to climb the ladder quickly but twice stumbled and fell to one knee. Nevertheless, he got up quickly enough, went up the ramp, turned around, and saluted the servicemen present at the airbase.
In 1975, the 38th President of the United States, Gerald Ford, fell while descending from a slippery plane ramp due to rain.
