Good samaritan? More like President Samaritan!
Barack Obama was promoting the Affordable Care Act yesterday when a woman behind him began to wobble back and forth.
The lady was about to faint when someone behind her pushed her forward while President Obama himself reached out and grabbed her hand!
The woman turned out to be Karmel Allison, a type 1 diabetic, who is also pregnant. Afterwards the lady said she was "feeling much better now" and also said:
"I'm 20 weeks pregnant at this point and I hadn't had that much to drink that morning because I was worried about possibly needing to go to the bathroom during the speech. And as the sun hit me, I got a little lightheaded."
Not only did President Obama save her from falling, but he made a self deprecating joke about himself afterwards that totally diffused the situation!
"This happens when I talk too long."
Here's what Karmel Allison tweeted later:
I'm ok world- just got a little lightheaded.Thanks, @BarackObama for catching me! And good thing this pregnant diabetic is pregnant :)

Aw yay! We're so glad she's okay!
Obama potentially saved not only one life, but two! Karmel Allison and her baby bump!
