UPDATED 6:39 p.m. ET: Hillary Clinton's doctor says the presidential nominee was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday. She was put on antibiotics, advised to rest and modify her schedule, according to a statement from her campaign.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton unexpectedly left the 9/11 memorial ceremony earlier than anticipated and may have suffered a "medical episode" while waiting for her motorcade.

Video posted on Twitter appears to show Mrs. Clinton having trouble getting into her van.

Clinton was driven to her daughter Chelsea's apartment in Manhattan. About an hour later, Secretary Clinton was seen walking out of the building, waving to cameras and posing for pictures with a young girl.

The Clinton campaign responded to media inquiries about the story just after 11am.

NBC Nightly News tweeted the statement from the Clinton campaign claiming the candidate felt "overheated" and left the ceremonies to go to Chelsea's apartment.

Quoting an unnamed source at the 9/11 memorial, a witness who claimed to be standing standing 15 feet away from Mrs. Clinton, Fox News' Rick Leventhal reported, "She stumbled off the curb, appeared to faint, lost one of her shoes -- that wound up underneath the van."

Shortly after the alleged incident took place, Leventhal appeared on Fox News.

An hour later, in another live report from the 9/11 memorial, Leventhal updated his earlier story. "We really don't know at this hour officially where she is or why she left," he reported just after 11am.
