Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton collapsed while giving his State of the State address Monday night … and the scary moment was captured on video.
Dayton was delivering the speech at the University of Minnesota — he was about 40 minutes in — when he began to slur his words and reached for a drink of water. Moments later he appeared to faint and others rushed in to help him.
The 69-year-old governor was reportedly conscious as he was helped into a back room minutes later. His son Eric just tweeted that his father is doing great … but offered no explanation for the collapse.
Dayton fainted at an event last year, which his staff attributed to overheating and dehydration.
