NEW YORK (AP) - Hillary Clinton's doctor says the Democratic presidential nominee was diagnosed on Friday with pneumonia, put on antibiotics and advised to rest and modify her campaign schedule.

Dr. Lisa Bardack says in a statement that Clinton is "recovering nicely" after attending a Sept. 11 anniversary event in lower Manhattan. Clinton was seen on video appearing to struggle to stay on her feet as she got into a vehicle to leave the event.

Bardack says Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies, and in a follow-up examination Friday of her cough, Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia.

The statement says Clinton became overheated at the 9/11 event and dehydrated, but is now rehydrated.
