Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., one of the frontrunners for the Democratic nomination for president, required stitches Friday morning after hitting his head on the side of a shower door, the New York Post reports.

Sanders, who is 77, visited a walk-in clinic “out of precaution,” in South Carolina after falling and injuring himself on the glass door of a shower, according to campaign spokesperson Arianna Jones. 

Jones also said that Sanders was given seven stitches and a “clean bill of health,” according to Boston.com, and added that Sanders “proceeded with all of his scheduled events,” that day.

"The senator has proceeded with all of his scheduled events — joining a group of approximately 20 local clergy for breakfast this morning — and looks forward to joining a roundtable with South Carolinians this afternoon to discuss how we can provide high quality affordable health care for all," Jones said, according to Politico.

Sanders is set to appear in Henderson, Nevada on Saturday for a campaign rally at 2:30 p.m. in Morrell Park.
