According to a statement from Clinton's campaign spokesperson, Nick Merrill, the candidate felt "overheated," so she went to her daughter's apartment. Clinton is "feeling much better," the statement said.

That statement came more than an hour after reporters following the campaign tweeted about the incident, saying the 68-year-old left without her press pool. Her whereabouts at the time were unknown, but it was later confirmed that she had retreated to her daughter's nearby apartment.

Video taken at the scene and posted on social media shows Clinton being held up by three people. She staggers and appears to trip on a curb as they help her into a vehicle.

After the incident Sunday, she told reporters, "It's a beautiful day in New York."
