Former President Donald Trump's speech came to a sudden halt as a medical emergency unfolded in the crowd at a rally in Greensboro, North Carolina. 

The incident occurred during a crucial campaign push just 48 hours before Super Tuesday, where Trump is poised to dominate the Republican primaries.

As Donald Trump addressed a diverse range of topics, from immigration to allegations of election rigging, an unidentified medical emergency prompted an interruption. 

A video shared on X captured the moment, showing someone in the crowd receiving medical attention while the former president observed the situation.

The specifics of the emergency remain unknown, as inquiries have been made to the Greensboro Police and Emergency Services department, the Greensboro Coliseum Complex, and Trump's campaign for clarification.

The incident echoes a similar occurrence in Las Vegas earlier this year when Donald Trump paused his speech, pointing towards someone in the crowd, signaling the need for medical assistance. The former president displayed concern, saying, "Medical. Medical please. Are they OK? Doctor in the house, thank you."

Heading into Super Tuesday, Donald Trump maintains a substantial lead over Republican rival Nikki Haley in North Carolina, according to recent polls. A High Point University Survey Research Center poll in February showed Trump ahead by 47 points, while a Capen Analytics survey indicated a 64 percent to 36 percent advantage.

Despite consistent losses in the primaries, Nikki Haley remains steadfast in her commitment to challenge Donald Trump. In a recent interview with CNN, she emphasized the importance of offering an alternative to voters dissatisfied with both Trump and Biden.
