Hillary Clinton Leaves 9-11 Ceremony Feeling ‘Overheated’

NEW YORK (WWJ/AP) –  Hillary Clinton is back at her suburban New York home, after having left the 9/11 memorial ceremony in lower Manhattan early because she was feeling “overheated.”

A video posted on Twitter shows Clinton from behind held closely by a member of her staff, before slumping and being helped into a waiting van as she leaves the 9/11 memorial service in New York.

Clinton’s campaign says the former secretary of state left the annual remembrance event on Sunday after feeling “overheated.” She retreated to her daughter Chelsea’s apartment in Manhattan. She left a short time later, saying she was “feeling great.”

The video shows Clinton waiting curbside for a van to arrive. She is surrounded by her Secret Service detail, and a staff member is standing next to her and appears to be tightly holding her left arm.

Clinton stumbles as she tries to step forward into the van, and is then helped inside the vehicle.

The Democratic presidential nominee walked out of her daughter’s apartment just before noon on Sunday.

Clinton saying, “It’s a beautiful day in New York. I’m feeling great. Thank you.”

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.
