UPDATE: The Clinton campaign tells the press that instead of going to a hospital as earlier reported, she was instead taken to her daughter’s Manhattan apartment. As reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, “Clinton’s campaign says the former secretary of state left the morning ceremony after a 90-minute visit. They say she ‘felt overheated’ and left for the nearby apartment. Her campaign has not offer additional details, including whether Clinton required medical attention.”

While attending the remembrance ceremony at One World Trade Center in South Manhattan, Democrat nominee for president Hillary Clinton unexpectedly left early in what has been declared a “medical episode.”

As reported by Fox News;

Hillary Clinton had a “medical episode” that required her to leave a 9/11 commemoration ceremony early, a law enforcement source who witnessed the event told Fox News.

The Democratic presidential nominee appeared to faint on her way into her van and had to be helped by her security, the source said. She was “clearly having some type of medical episode.”

Clinton’s stumbled off the curb, her “knees buckled” and she lost a shoe as she was helped into a van during her “unexpected early departure,” a witness told Fox News.

The Sunday Express of London also reports;

US journalist Rick Levanthal of Fox News said: “Source tells me Hillary Clinton ‘clearly having some type of medical episode’.”

He added his unnamed security source said she “had to be helped into her van by her protective detail” at the World Trade Centre.

The source also said her knees had buckled and she had lost a shoe while being helped into the vehicle.
