An eyewitness just saw Melissa Gilbert being taken away in an ambulance after performing on “DWTS” tonight during rock week.

“It appeared like they had put her neck in a brace,” said the source. “She was lying on a stretcher and her entourage surrounded her in a worried group. Melissa was still in her white dancing with the stars costume after she and partner Maks Chmerkovskiy had danced the paso doble and got solid scores and praise tonight She was taken away from CBS studios in the ambulance.”

It remains unclear what happened to the “DWTS” contender but Maks went to the hospital with Melissa after Gavin DeGraw carried her down the stairs. Tom Bergeron announced at the end of the show that Melissa got injured and was going to the hospital as a precaution. Early reports state that she hit her head while performing the paso doble and felt dizzy.
