Video has surfaced of Hillary Clinton appearing to stumble 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 appeared to lose her balance. One of her aides is seen grabbing onto her arm as the motorcade arrives. Her security detail then had to help her into the van buy grabbing each of her arms. She then 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 11:45 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 then waved at customers at a nearby restaurant before getting into a van. She is now believed to be heading back to her house in Chappaqua, New York.
Nick Merrill, her travelling press secretary, said Clinton ‘overheated’ during the ceremony, but had quickly recovered. But the video seems to show her symptoms are far worse than her aides have suggested.
