Hillary Clinton has been rushed out of a 9/11 commemoration ceremony.

“She unexpectedly left early because of what appeared to be a medical episode,” Fox News’ Rick Levanthal reported.

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.

A law enforcement source told Fox News that the Democrat presidential nominee left because she was not feeling well.

She was in New York to commemorate the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

The Clinton campaign would not confirm the candidate’s current location.

Update: The Clinton campaign told the Associated Press that Clinton is now “feeling much better” after leaving the event because she was “overheated.” Temperatures in New York City hovered around 80 degrees on Sunday.

CNN reported that Clinton was jettisoned to her daughter Chelsea’s apartment.

“Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just one hour and 30 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,” Nick Merrill, a Clinton spokesman, wrote in a statement.”

The media could not independently verify that Clinton went to her daughter’s apartment as her press pool was not allowed to travel with her when she left the event.

Video emerged Sunday afternoon of the reported fainting episode.
