Someone fainted at an event for President Obama in Ohio:

"I'm sure they're OK," President Obama said. "Sometimes folks faint because they've been standing too long. So just need a paramedic right here, in the front. They'll be OK, just give them room. That's all. This happens to me all the time. It means I've been talking too long. They'll be OK. Just give them space."
