A diabetic woman who was part of a small crowd of Affordable Care Act participants standing behind President Barack Obama at Monday's press conference became dizzy and almost fainted.

Karmel Allison, who the White House identified as having Type 1 diabetes, The Hill reported, at first was assisted by others on the stage before Obama turned around to help her avoid falling.

Story continues below video.



"There you go, you're OK," Obama told Allison as he grabbed her left arm. "I'm right here. I've got you."

Someone then escorted her off the dais.

"This is what happens when I talk too long," Obama quipped.

Later on, Allison took to Twitter to say she was fine and revealed she's pregnant.
