U S Presidential Candidate Collapse Hillary Clinton, It Was Revealed That She Is Suffering From Pneumonia

 U S Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton,  scheduled to travel to California this week to appear at two fundraising events and on the Ellen DeGeneres television show. 

However, the 68-year-old was forced to leave a 9/11 commemoration service yesterday suffering from a “medical episode” and has now cancelled her arrangements on the West Coast.

The US presidential candidate said she will release additional medical records this week after claims she was being overly secretive on her health.

Press Secretary Brian Fallon announced that Clinton would release the medical records. He stressed the campaign made mistakes on dealing with the situation on Sunday.

Hillary Clinton was forced to cancel a fundraising trip to California after nearly collapsing at a 9/11 memorial event .
A video has emerged of the Democratic presidential nominee in which her "knees buckled" as she left the commemorative event. 

She was then assisted by security staff into a van.

Mr Fallon added that the campaign had specifically not responded to questions for 90 minutes about Clinton's exit from the memorial event.

It has now been revealed by her doctor she was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday.

Lisa Bardack, the former first lady's doctor said: “Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. 
“On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia.

"She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. 

“While at this morning's event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely."

Her campaign team said she had been "overheated" but was now feeling "much better".

Last year, Clinton released a summary of medical reports and testing but until now has refused to release more. Now Clinton has decided to release further records.

According to US journalist Rick Levanthal, of Fox News, “She unexpectedly left early because of what appeared to be a medical episode.

Law enforcement source who was there, who was 15 feet away form Hillary Clinton, 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 continued: "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.
