Hillary Clinton Abruptly Leaves 9/11 Memorial Ceremony After Allegedly Suffering A ‘Medical Episode’
There are various reports that Hillary Clinton suffered what is being labeled as a “medical episode” on Sunday morning. The alleged issue caused Clinton to abruptly leave a 9/11 commemoration ceremony early.
The Democratic presidential candidate was attending a ceremony at the September 11th memorial in New York City when she was forced to leave early. Clinton arrived at the event at 8:18 a.m. and left around 90 minutes later.
Rick Leventhal, Fox News Senior Correspondent, was the first to report on the situation and says his source was a member of the law enforcement at the event and was 15-feet away from Clinton when it happened.
The source said they believed Clinton fainted on her way into her van and had to be helped by her security. She was “clearly having some type of medical episode.”
Hillary allegedly stumbled off the curb, her “knees buckled” and she lost a shoe as she was helped into a van during her “unexpected early departure,” the witness said.
Hillary’s campaign has confirmed that Clinton was not feeling well during the event and was forced to leave. Her campaign team revealed that she had been “overheated” but was now feeling “much better.”
It was 80 degrees this morning in New York City with 40% humidity and an 11 mph breeze.
There were reports that she was taken to the hospital. Clinton’s staff said she was now resting at her daughter’s New York apartment.
