Report: Hillary Leaves 9/11 Mem'l Early Due To ‘Medical Episode’
Hillary Clinton joined a number of dignitaries, including Donald Trump, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, former NYPD commissioner Bernie Kerik, and others to pay her respects to those Americans lost on September 11, 2001, at the annual ceremony at 9/11 Memorial Plaza.
But, as a law enforcement source stationed about “15 feet away” from Clinton told Fox News’ Rick Leventhal, Clinton left the Lower Manhattan, N.Y. ceremony early due to what was being called an apparent “medical episode.”
Leventhal said his source watched Clinton as she was standing on a street curb with her security detail while waiting for her motorcade.
As the motorcade was not expecting her as early as she had left, Leventhal said, the Democratic presidential nominee stood for two or more minutes awaiting the vehicles.
When the motorcade approached, Clinton “stumbled off the curb and appeared to faint” as she got into her van.
Clinton appeared to need assistance getting into the vehicle, Leventhal said, losing her shoe.
An aide grabbed the shoe as her van pulled away and gave it to the next vehicle in her motorcade.
A second source later confirmed the event to Leventhal, as the campaign “pool” reporters were not in the area and did not where Clinton initially departed to, he told Jon Scott.
Later, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill released a statement saying Clinton "felt overheated" and "departed to her daughter's apartment, and is feeling much better."
