President Donald Trump says he's hoping a supporter will be fine after a medical incident at his final rally ahead of Tuesday's midterm election.

Trump paused his stump speech for roughly five minutes after being alerted to a medical emergency in the crowd of thousands.

As emergency workers made their way to the woman, Trump said: "Take your time. Take your time. Relax." After several minutes the audience broke into the hymn "Amazing Grace."

Resuming his speech after the supporter was taken out of the arena, Trump said of the singing, "That was beautiful."

He adds: "Hopefully she'll be OK."

Medical emergencies are common at presidential rallies, where security requires attendees to be in place for hours ahead of time.
