The moment Hillary Clinton collapses as she is helped into her van after being rushed from 9/11 memorial – but her aides try to explain it away as ‘overheating.’
Hillary Clinton appearing to stumble as she was led into a van after suffering a ‘medical episode’ during the 9/11 memorial service
Video has surfaced of Hillary Clinton appearing to collapse as she was led into a van after suffering a ‘medical episode’ during the 9/11 memorial service.
The Democratic presidential candidate is seen standing on a curb near the World Trade Center when she suddenly appeared unable to stand.
She seems to nearly fall to the ground before she is caught by her aides, who hold her up. Her security detail then had to help her into the van by grabbing each of her arms.
The former Secretary of State then appears to fall forward toward the door of the van before being bundled inside.
She appears to lose a shoe under the vehicle in the struggle before being driven to daughter Chelsea’s apartment in Manhattan.
Despite the concerning footage, she emerged from the home at 11:45am on Sunday saying she was fine. She told waiting reporters: ‘I’m feeling great, it’s a beautiful day in New York.’
A smiling Clinton was then greeted by a young girl on the street to pose for a picture. She waved at customers at a nearby restaurant before getting into a van.
Clinton then traveled to her home in Chappaqua, New York, according to her campaign.
It is not known whether she saw a doctor.
Nick Merrill, her traveling press secretary, said Clinton ‘overheated’ during the ceremony, but quickly recovered.
She recently said she had been suffering from allergy attacks since Labor Day and had upped her antihistamine dosage.
