Secretary of state faints, sustains concussion

WASHINGTON (WKOW) – The State of Department says Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton sustained a concussion after fainting.

Hillary Clinton skipped an overseas trip last week due to a stomach virus and is now at home recovering and being monitored by doctors.

The department said Clinton was dehydrated because of the virus and that she fainted, causing the concussion. No further details were immediately available.

An aide, Philippe Reines, said Clinton will work from home next week, at the recommendation of the doctors.

Congressional aides do not expect her to testify as scheduled at congressional hearings on Thursday into the September 11 attach against a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans including the U.S. ambassador.
