A 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.
One of her aides is seen grabbing onto her arm as the motorcade arrives. Her security detail then had to help her into her van before she was 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.
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.
Clinton left the World Trade Center at around 9:30 after spending 90 minutes at the site, but her team did not confirm why she had been driven away until 11am.
Trump said he had ‘no idea’ what happened when asked about Hillary’s health after the ceremony.
Merrill said in a statement: ‘Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen.
‘During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment, and is feeling much better.’
Clinton’s press team later updated the statement to remove the word ‘just’, stating it was a ‘typo’.
When she was taken away, she had to wait for a couple of minutes for her motorcade as it wasn’t waiting for her, witnesses said.
Fox News reporter Rick Levanthal said one person standing 15ft away from her told him her knees buckled as she stepped off of a curb. She also appeared to lose a shoe as she walked into the vehicle.
Her detail retrieved a shoe from underneath the van and helped the former Secretary of State inside, according to reports.
The temperature was around 80 degrees at Ground Zero during the service.
Clinton was standing in the middle of a crowd of politicians packed together in a small space.
It is not known if she was standing in direct sunlight. There are many shaded areas surrounding the memorial.
Clinton suspended campaigning on Sunday in a show of support and respect for both those who died and those who survived the attacks.
Earlier on Sunday she tweeted: ‘We’ll never forget the horror of September 11, 2001. Today, let’s honor the lives and tremendous spirit of the victims and responders.’
The latest reports will add to claims from conspiracy theorists she has health problems.
Right-wing groups have tried to suggest pictures of her being helped a long by her security detail prove she is ill.
Controversial blog, American Mirror, started its conspiracy-theorizing post by stating Clinton’s health should be ‘a major issue of the 2016 campaign’.
Dr. Drew Pinsky’s HLN show was brought to an end after he made bizarre claims Clinton is suffering from a wide range of health problems, including brain damage.
He made the claims despite an extensive review revealed of her records revealed she was in good health.
Before the anniversary, Clinton recounted her memories of that fateful day that left 2,977 people dead.
