UPDATE! Hillary has 'MEDICAL EPISODE' at 9/11 Ceremony

Hillary Clinton had a “medical episode” that required her to leave a 9/11 commemoration ceremony early, a law enforcement source who witnessed the event told Fox News.
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.

Clinton was in New York for Sunday’s ceremony commemorating 15 years since the 9/11 terror attacks.
The Clinton campaign would not confirm Clinton’s location to an NBC pool producer. After Clinton left the ceremony, the reporters following her on the campaign trail were prevented from leaving the media area.

Fox News’ Rick Leventhal contributed to this report.

The Democratic presidential nominee's "knees buckled" as she left the event before it ended and was helped into a van. 
US journalist Rick Levanthal of Fox News said: “She unexpectedly left early because of what appeared to be a medical episode.
"I have a law enforcement source who was there, who was 15 feet away form Hillary Clinton. He said she was standing on a curb with her protective detail waiting for her motorcade.
"They were surprised to see her because she wasn't meant to be leaving yet.

"When it finally rolled up my source said she stumbled off the curb, appeared to faint, lost one of her shoes, which wound up under the van."
She arrived at the event at 8.18am local time and left around 90 minutes later.
Mr Levanthal said: "The protective detail helped her into the van and the van took off, presumably in the direction of the hospital.
"They grabbed her shoe, flagged down the rest of the motorcade and this was given to her protective detail. 
"It's not terribly hot today. It was certainly warm at the scene.
"But again, Hillary Clinton, who my source was 15 feet away from, said she appeared to be having some sort of medical episode.
Journalists who attempted to follow her were barred from leaving the press area at the ceremony.
