NEW YORK – Hillary Clinton has said she is "feeling great" after becoming overheated and leaving early during a ceremony to mark 15 years since the 9/11 terror attacks.

The Democratic presidential candidate spoke as she left her daughter Chelsea's home in Manhattan, where she went to recuperate following the memorial.

Footage has emerged showing Mrs. Clinton being supported by officials as she gets into a black vehicle while leaving the memorial.

The footage appears to show Mrs. Clinton swaying before stumbling on the street.

Earlier her campaign released a statement saying Mrs. Clinton "attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and 30 minutes … 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."

The statement offered no additional details, including whether the 68-year-old Mrs. Clinton required medical attention.

Democratic Representative Joe Crowley of New York, a Clinton supporter who attended the event, told MSNBC that the weather was "stifling" during the ceremony.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has repeatedly raised questions about his rival's health and whether she has the energy to serve as president.

During Mrs. Clinton's speech at a campaign rally earlier this month in Cleveland, she was interrupted by a coughing spell.

During the speech, she quipped: "Every time I think about Trump I get allergic." She then resumed her speech.

In December 2012, Mrs. Clinton suffered a concussion and shortly after had a blood clot.

In a letter released by her doctor in July, Clinton was described as being in "excellent health" and "fit to serve" in the White House.
