For the second time in recent weeks, there was a medical emergency at a Christine Quinn campaign event for mayor.

It appears the heat got the best of one of the mayoral candidate's young supporters, and she fainted.

Quinn helped the teenager up and took her inside of City Hall.

The girl never lost consciousness and is said to be doing fine.

Back in July, a City Council intern fainted at a Quinn campaign rally and waited more than a half hour for an ambulance.

When no ambulance showed up, Quinn intervened and called the fire and police commissioners to get help.

Meanwhile, Quinn is not the only mayoral candidate who dealt with an interruption to their campaign schedule this weekend.

Anthony Weiner's spokeswoman says he was involved in a minor car accident near East 96th Street Saturday morning as he was making his way to the March on Washington anniversary event in Washington D.C.

Officials say it was a chain reaction accident, and that no one was injured.
