The Democratic presidential nominee appeared to faint on her way into her van and had to be helped by her security, the source said. She was “clearly having some type of medical episode.”
"Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen," Clinton spokesperson Nick Merrill said in a statement. "During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter's apartment, and is feeling much better."
But a witness told Fox News that Clinton stumbled off the curb, her "knees buckled" and she lost a shoe as she was helped into a van during her "unexpected early departure."
But then other news outlets picked it up as well.

I don't know if she actually did stumble, or if she was simply tired from campaigning, or suffering from heat exhaustion like the campaign is now saying.Hillary 'rushed from 9/11 memorial service following medical episode' https://t.co/IF9uvpXujD via @MailOnline— JDVFL (@JDVFL) September 11, 2016
What I do know is that this feeds into an already existing meme by the Right Wing that Hillary is in poor health, and THAT is simply not a good thing.
Update: Okay here is some raw footage of Hillary leaving Chelsea's apartment.
I still think she needs to do a public appearance and address the issue.
Update 2: Not good!
