Woman faints during Obama's final WH press conference


President Obama’s final press conference at the White House was interrupted Friday when an older woman who had been standing among photographers fainted twice.

While reporters attempted to lead the woman out of the briefing room after her first fainting spell, she fainted a second time, and fell into an empty seat six rows back from the podium.

“Is somebody grabbing a doctor?” Obama turned to ask his staff. “Just give her a little room.”

The woman, who was not immediately identified, was eventually escorted out of the room and off to receive medical attention.
