Obama to the Rescue!
Obama to the Rescue!
U.S. President Barack Obama's speech on Monday about health care was briefly interrupted when a diabetic pregnant woman standing behind him nearly fainted.
Obama was finishing his 26-minute long speech when the woman behind him on the Rose Garden steps became lightheaded.
He paused his speech and turned around to help, holding the woman up and making a joke.
"This is what happens when I talk too long," said Obama.
The White House identified Karmel Allison as a prospective Affordable Care Act beneficiary, with Type 1 diabetes.
She was reported to be fine.
