The video, as shared above, shows Modi did not suffer any injuries due to the accident. He was quick enough to prevent his upper body to directly take the brunt of the fall. Modi immediately got up, with some assistance from his Special Protection Group (SPG) staff, and continued his ascent on the stairs of Ganga banks.
