A video has appeared online purportedly showing Hillary Clinton getting into her car, evidently feeling unwell.
Fox News reported earlier, citing a law enforcement source, that Hillary Clinton had had a “medical episode.”
A witness told Fox News that Clinton stumbled off the curb, her “knees buckled” and she lost a shoe as she was helped into a van during her “unexpected early departure.”
According to Fox News, reporters accompanying Clinton were “prevented from leaving the media area for a period of time” after the incident.
Two senior law enforcement sources told NBC that Clinton had to wrap up her visit to the 9/11 memorial after feeling “ill.”

Shortly afterwards, Clinton left her daughter’s house, saying she “was feeeling great,” the Associated Press reported.
The temperatures in New York reached over 84 degrees Fahrenheit (29°C) during Sunday’s event.
“It’s a beautiful day in New York,” Clinton told journalists waiting outside her daughter’s house, AP reports.
Clinton was attending the 9/11 memorial in New York on the 15th anniversary of the deadly attacks, which claimed nearly 3,000 lives.
The overwhelming majority of the victims died after two passenger planes slammed into the World Trade Center buildings in New York on September 11, 2001.
