President Joe Biden tripped and fell while appearing at the U.S. Air Force Academy’s commencement ceremony in Colorado on Thursday.

Video of the spill appeared to show the president clip the front of his foot on something before falling to the ground with his arms out, braced for impact.

Biden appeared unfazed after getting helped to his feet, and he took his seat shortly after.

“He’s fine,” White House communications director Ben LaBolt wrote on Twitter. “There was a sandbag on stage while he was shaking hands.”

“I know you are going to meet the moment,” he told the service members.
