Hillary Clinton collapses at 9/11 Memorial Ceremony

Video has surfaced of Hillary Clinton appearing to collapse 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 suddenly appeared unable to stand.

She seems to nearly fall to the ground before she is caught by her aides, who hold her up. Her security detail then had to help her into the van by grabbing each of her arms.

The former Secretary of State then appears to fall forward towards the door of the van before being bundled inside.  

She 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 11:45am on Sunday saying she was fine. She told waiting reporters: 'I'm feeling great, it's a beautiful day in New York'. 

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.'
