Crazy Video Pentagon Scare: Air Force General Passes Out at Podium
A scary moment happened as an Air Force major general fainted at the podium during a Pentagon briefing.
Maj. Gen. James Martin Jr. and his deputy had been speaking about the Air Force budget and the future of the F-35 fighter jet program when Martin suddenly slumped forward and seemed unable to stand.
He was caught by Deputy for Budget Carolyn Gleason, as aides rushed in to help steady him.
"That's what the F-35 will do to you," Gleason quipped about the super expensive military system, attempting to lighten the mood.
Reports said Martin was taken to a hospital as a precaution and was suffering from flu or cold.
He's now reported to be doing well and back at work.
