While she was leaving, reporters that are following her for the campaign were not allowed to leave the media area for a time. Clinton appeared to have fainted while getting into a car. Clinton’s campaign has not made a statement at this time.
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.
A separate law enforcement source told Fox News that Clinton left the event because she wasn’t feeling well.

UPDATE – Clinton Campaign Spokesperson Nick Merrill Released This 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.”
Does she look overheated to you? Here is a video of her getting into the car. Seems a little more serious than the Clinton Camp is making it out to be if you ask me.
