NEW YORK (AP) - Hillary Clinton's campaign says the Democratic presidential nominee left a 9/11 anniversary ceremony in New York after feeling "overheated."

The campaign says she's "feeling much better."

Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill says in a statement Sunday that the former secretary of state attended the morning ceremony for 90 minutes "to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen.

He adds, "During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter's apartment, and is feeling much better." Video captured by Twitter user @zgazda66 appears to show Clinton stumbling as she got into a van to leave the ceremony.

The statement offered no additional details, including whether Clinton required medical attention.

The Democratic nominee left her daughter Chelsea's apartment shortly after 11:45 a.m., waving at people gathered on the sidewalks, USA TODAY reported.

Sunday morning's forecast in New York showed temperatures around 80 degrees and roughly 40 percent humidity.
