Bill Nye Faints on Stage Video?

Science Guy Bill Nye fainted on stage during a speech at the University of Southern California, then got up and continued his presentation.
Paramedics and campus safety officers responded, but it's unclear if Nye was treated.
Nye told the audience a similar thing happened to him earlier in the day.
Is there a video of the moment Bill Nye faints on stage?

Did Bill Nye faint because of a health problem? Is he doing OK now?

Bill Nye was in the middle of his presentation when he began slurring his words and stumbled against his laptop. When Bill Nye first collapsed, students were “texting and updating their Twitter statuses” instead of going to Nye’s aid.

Bill Nye was eventually removed from the stage. Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics were called to the scene.

A student witness said that Nye collapsed in mid-sentence at the podium. About 10 seconds later, Nye apparently regained consciousness and asked the audience how long he was out.

Bill Nye's publicist, Glenn Schwartz said that Bill doing a lot better now after a good night's rest. He says he pushed himself too hard after a long day of work.

Here's a video of Bill Nye at USC. Unfortunately the fainting part was edited out.

That video doesn't show him fainting.

USC senior Tristan Camacho says Bill Nye fainted in mid-sentence at the podium. Students looked shocked. About 10 seconds later, she says he was conscious and asked the audience how long he was out, he looked confused and disoriented. Nye told something similar happened to him earlier in the day.

The students were very impolite. Rather than getting up from their seats to rush to Bill Nye's aid, instead pulled out their mobile devices to post information about Nye's loss of consciousness.
