(FOX NEWS) – Hillary Clinton canceled plans to visit California on Monday and Tuesday and instead will rest at her home in Chappaqua, N.Y. following a medical episode that caused her to stagger and faint Sunday at a 9/11 commemoration ceremony, her campaign said.
The Democratic presidential nominee fell on her way into her van and had to be helped by her security, according to witnesses and video of her leaving. A law enforcement source told Fox News that she “clearly (was) having some type of medical episode.” Clinton’s doctor revealed later that she had been diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday.
Clinton had planned two days of fundraising and made plans to appear on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show.
Clinton’s campaign released a statement more than an hour after the incident saying the former Secretary of State “felt overheated,” and later Sunday issued another release blaming the episode on pneumonia and dehydration.
