“Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just one hour and 30 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,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement.
The pool accompanying Clinton says she left the ceremony around 9:30 a.m.
While she was making her way into a van in her motorcade, Secret Service agents helped her into the van in the motorcade, a senior law enforcement official said.
Leaving her daughter’s apartment a little before noon, Clinton told reporters she was “feeling great.”
“It’s a beautiful day in New York,” she added, while smiling and waving to supporters on the street before getting into her motorcade.
