VIDEO: Woman Nearly Faints During Obama Speech

Posted: Updated:

A woman became light-headed while standing behind President Obama during his comments this morning in the White House Rose Garden.

The President was surrounded by people who have already benefited from the Affordable Care Act, new registrants and others.

He was near the end of his speech when Karmel Allison, shown in the video above wearing the red dress, started swaying, closing her eyes and taking deep breaths.

A woman next to her grabbed her hand and helped to stabilize her.

When someone alerted the President to what was going on behind him, he turned to Allison and helped support her saying "I got you, you're ok."

Allison was escorted into the White House.

The President told the audience "This is what happens when I talk too long."

There is no update on the woman's condition.

According to the White House, Allison has had type one diabetes since she was nine years old.
