    Rick Santorum Abruptly Ends Campaign Event To Help Person – March 9 2012

    It is not clear in the video what happened  but during during a speech in Mobile, Alabama something appeared to happen to an attendee, Santorum ended the speech and ran over to help the person.

    Here is what happened, via The American Spectator:

    A middle-aged black woman had fainted dead-out, flat onto the concrete floor (it was a bit muggy; raining outside). A lot of candidates would have looked out, stopped talking, asked people to go see if she were okay, and then perhaps continued speaking once it was clear that responsible people were seeing to her well-being.

    Not Santorum. He stopped his remarks dead in his tracks, just before reaching a planned crescendo:

    “Oh — well everybody, thank you and God Bless,” he quickly mumbled, already leaving the podium. And then he leapt down the stairs and rushed to the lady’s aid, just about the fifth person to reach her side.
