Posted Tuesday April 10, 2012 10:00 AM GMT

It was a scary evening for Melissa Gilbert, who had to be rushed to the hospital from the set of “Dancing with the Stars” last night.

Following her paso doble performance with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Gilbert was carried down from her skybox seat by Gavin DeGraw and placed on a stretcher.

Once at the hospital, Melissa tweeted, “I’m alright. Mild concussion and whiplash. Very soon I will be safely home resting and being taken care of.”

She also tweeted to Chmerkovskiy- "@Maksim you are my champion. I adore you," and to Gavin- "@GavinDeGraw bless your heart for carrying me down those stairs!"

After the ordeal, DeGraw told press, "I think anybody would have done it," of his decision to carry Melissa to the ambulance.
