(NECN) - As President Barack Obama began his energy speech at Nashua Community College in New Hampshire, one person in the audience fainted.

The crowd yelled out 911, alerting the President that something was wrong.

Obama said the person was probably standing too long and needed some space before calling on EMS to assist the person.

The President told the crowd they need to eat ahead of presidential events to keep their blood sugar up.

When the crowd assured him everything was all good, Obama got back to his speech on American energy.
