This story has been updated.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton abruptly left the Sept. 11 commemoration ceremony in downtown Manhattan earlier than expected Sunday, with her campaign saying she felt "overheated."

Clinton was seen being assisted by an aide and Secret Service agent as she entered her SUV while departing the ceremony, at which point she briefly stumbled before entering the vehicle.

"Secretary Clinton attended the Sept. 11th commemoration ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen," Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill. "During the ceremony, she felt overheated so departed to go to her daughter's apartment, and is feeling much better."

Vehicles in Clinton's motorcade were seen parked in front of Chelsea Clinton's home in the Flatiron District of Manhattan late Sunday morning.

Just before noon, Clinton left her daughter's apartment, waving to onlookers and media and saying "It's a beautiful day." She then greeted a young girl who approached her before entering her SUV, reportedly on her way back to her home in Chappaqua.

Clinton, who will turn 69 in October, arrived in downtown Manhattan at around 8:30 a.m., and was greeted by several political officials.

Clinton was stationed in the front row at the ceremony, which included U.S. senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, former mayors Michael Bloomberg  and Rudolph Giuliani and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who was at the opposite end of the row from Clinton.
