During President Obama's news conference on Monday, a woman nearly fainted! Obama was defending the Affordable Care Act after the health care reform's website has gone through numerous technical issues, when a woman standing directly behind him started to look as though she was going to pass out.
Mark Simone was talking about President Obama's reaction on the air. The president turned around mid-speech, sensing something was wrong and helped hold up the fainting woman. President Obama was speaking for about 30 minutes in the Rose Garden of the White House. The woman, Karmel Allison, apparently suffers from Type 1 Diabetes and got lightheaded. She later tweeted that she was ok and thanked the president for his help.
