Clinton falls ill at nine-eleven memorial
Written by Morenike Adebayo on September 12, 2016
US Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says she is “feeling great” hours after her early exit from a nine-eleven ceremony raised health fears. Her campaign said earlier she had left the event in New York because she had “felt overheated” and had gone to her daughter’s apartment.
Clinton’s Republican opponents have queried her physical fitness. Her personal doctor, Lisa Bardack however said last month that she is in excellent health and fit to serve as president of the United States. Clinton is sixty-eight years old, while Republican candidate Donald Trump is seventy. Services marking the fifteenth anniversary of the nine-eleven attacks have taken place in New York and around the world throughout Sunday. A total of two thousand, nine hundred and ninety-six people died on the eleventh of September, 2001 when al-Qaeda militants hijacked four planes, crashing two into the World Trade Center’s twin towers in New York, a third into the Pentagon and the fourth into a field in Pennsylvania.
