A young woman fainted during the White House press briefing on Tuesday, abruptly ending the event.
The woman, who was wearing a White House intern badge, had been standing throughout the hourlong briefing but collapsed during a final question on the president's pending executive order on protections for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender workers.
Deputy press secretary Eric Schultz returned quickly with a bottle of water for the woman, who was sitting and alert. Earnest reemerged shortly after to check on her health.
