House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) was "on the verge of passing out" at a press conference with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday, local NBC anchors reported. It appears have been a case of dehydration.

During the event, which was held to discuss the expansion of school zone cameras, De Blasio noticed Nadler was in distress and offered him water and asked him if he was alright. Nadler said, "no," and then put his hand over his face. Someone captured the scare on video.

"He is okay," Nadler's spokesperson said in a statement. "Seems to have been dehydrated and it was very warm in the room. He is now responsive and receiving a check-up."
