Other MPs rushed to her aid.
During Question Period, Liberal MP Pam Damoff fainted while MP Omar Alghabra was speaking.
Damoff appeared to take a breath, set down her tablet, and then faint onto her desk.
MPs in the vicinity quickly realized something was wrong, and called for help.
In a rare display of bipartisanship, MPs with medical experience – including Dr. Jane Philpott – rushed to Danoff’s aid.
She later left the House of Commons under her own power and was given some water. Her staff say she is now doing well.
The video of the incident can be watched below:
