President Barack Obama helped a pregnant woman who began to faint during his speech about health care reforms today, joking ‘That’s what happens when I talk too long.’
Mr Obama reached out to catch prospective Affordable Care Act beneficiary Karmel Allison who was standing directly behind him as he discussed the glitches of the new healthcare website in the Rose Garden of the White House.
Towards the end of the lengthy speech, Ms Allison became unsteady and started to lose consciousness. At that point, the President turned around and helped catch her before she actually fainted.
‘I got you. You’re OK,’ Mr Obama told her. The woman was escorted away for medical assistance as the crowd applauded.
Not sure if this was a PR stunt or not, but good one none the less.
