He was then rushed to a millitary hospital by helicopter where was kept under cardiological observation in the Val-de-Grace military hospital overnight. The tests done to him were all reported to be normal.
French Health Ministry Roselyne Bachelot said Sarkozy had suffered a “small” vasovagal episode, which can be caused by strenuous exercise when it is very hot.
Eye witness walking in the gardens of the Sun King's palace leading to La Lanterne said he saw the President running with his body guards. He looked "tired and was almost dragging his feet" and suddenly fell over. His personal physician was around and he gave initial support. Information says he never lost counciousness.
Currently, he has been discharged from the hospital.
During his presidential campaign, Sarkozy pushed for greater transparency on presidential health bulletins, but his short hospital stay for a throat problem in 2007 was revealed only three months later.
Previous French presidents regularly concealed their health problems.
The French public learned that former President Georges Pompidou had bone marrow cancer only after he died of it, while in office, on April 2, 1974.
Former President Francois Mitterrand, who led France from 1981-95 and died of prostate cancer just months after leaving office, ordered his doctor to systematically falsify his health bulletins for 11 years.
Former President Jacques Chirac was hospitalized for a week at Val de Grace in 2005 for a vascular problem and officials never fully explained what was wrong.
Vasovagal episode can occur at any person especially when doing strenous exercises in particular to those who have tight schedules or they are extremely busy.
In some eye surgeries, which involve radical removal of the eyeball, may result this reflex, and usually eye doctors are are fully aware of this, and just before cutting the last "stalk", all precautions are taken. As rarely may lead into cardiac arrest.

Total solar eclipse was not observed in Africa due to geographical position and time of eclipse.
In India, Japan and China it was total darkness for a period of about 4 minutes.
Solar eclipse has been associated with so many beliefs especially in Asian countries and partly in African countries.
In Asia, sometimes is associated with violence, ocean turmoir, disasters and so many beliefs.
In some African countries, they believe solar system is just gods roaming around the universe, and sun is one of the gods, and when eclipse come, it was assumed that the god was angry with the world, and people were preparing themselves for the disaster which will follow as punishment from the god.
In India, there are some people who still believe that on the day of eclipse, pregnant women should not be exposed to the sun, as they have belief that the unborn child will have physical defects.
But for foreigners who were exposed to the sunlight on the day of eclipse had never experience any abnormality to their newborns, which proves that this is just a false belief.

The Tanzanian government has put up infrastructure at Oldonyo Sambu for more than 60,000 Ngorongoro conservation area residents to be relocated there in response to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco) conditions for the site to remain in its heritage listing. This was said by the minister of Natural Resources and Tourism Shamsa Mwangunga.
She said Unesco's concern was that there had been increased human activities in the conservation area topped up with increased population, which were reportedly driving the world's heritage site to the brink of collapse.The Ngorongoro Crater area now has a human population of 64,842, more than twice the required number of 25,000 people that the eco-system can support.There are also 13,650, herds of cattle and 193,056 goats and sheep.
She added that Unesco stipulated that the ecological deterioration within Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) brought about by increased farming activities, infrastructural development and more than doubled number of residents with tripling herds of livestock had placed the area in a very awkward situation.
The international body opposes cultivation within the NCA, traffic congestion into the crater at the rate of 300 vehicles per day on average, major hotel constructions on the crater rim and mass tourism policy. Last year Ngorongoro received 425,000 visitors, previously the number averaged 350,000 per annum.
Experts believe this is unhealthy for the site's ecology."If Unesco axes Ngorongoro from the list of the World Heritage Sites, no tourists will come to visit the place again so it is important to comply with their guidelines," said Mwangunga.
The crater is also home to almost every individual species of wildlife in East Africa, with an estimated 25,000 animals living in the caldera.
Personally, I worked in Ngororongoro conservation area for 2 years from Dec. 1999 to Oct. 2001. The population by then was around 35,000 but I could sense the population density increasing from people coming outside Ngorongoro looking for job on booming building activities there. I had a chat by the then conservator about my worries and concern. But it was difficult and very sensitive issue to intervene by then because of electoral processes.
If you have never been in Ngorongoro, I urge you to visit this site at least once in your life time, you will never forget this beauty land of animals.

I admire President Paul Kagame of Rwanda.
He is a visionary man and always learns from others. He applies whatever has been done by other people provided he believes that is good for him and public image.
Last week was a Army week by which the Rwanda defense forces provided various humanitarian services to the community in need including medical care, construction work, animal husbandry etc to the people in need. This is another indicator that the Rwandan society has by far gone past conflicts for which it was originally famous for.
President Kagame, being the former senior military officer, he did not remain behind, instead he went in outskirt and involves himself on community work, I saw him and his wife participating actively in digging a trench for the foundation of house! Of course not a fully involvement, but who will sleep on bed while the president himself works?!!
When I saw him joining the forces on community work, it reminded me our former president, the late Mwalimu Nyerere who was a typical Mjamaa.
On Rwanda’s liberation day, I discovered that President Kagame admires very much the work which was done by Nyerere towards building unity in Tanzania, my calculations eventually got an answer.
Yes indeed, take all good ideas from other people and put into practice and ignore all those which they do not have any benefit to you.

Juzi hapa Rwanda ilikuwa ni siku ya kukumbuka ukombozi wa Rwanda kutoka katika mauaji ya kimbari miaka 15 iliyopita.
Kwa kawaida kila mwaka hutolewa zawadi za kijadi kwa mashujaa wa Rwanda katika matukio mbalimbali. Mwaka huu ilikuwa ni tofauti kidogo, kwani mashujaa waliotoa mchango mkubwa katika kumaliza vita hivyo, nao walipewa nishani za heshima za uruti ambayo hupewa mashujaa waliotukuka wa Rwanda, na Umurinzi, ambayo ni kwa wale wanaoshiriki kikamilifu katika kampeni ya kutokomeza mauaji ya kimbari Rwanda.
Mwaka huu watu watatu wamepata nishani hizo akiwemo Waziri mkuu wa Ethiopia Menan Zenawi, Rais wa Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni na Hayati Baba wa Taifa, Julius Kambarage Nyerere ambaye nishani yake ilichukuliwa na mjane wake Mama Maria Nyerere
Kwangu nilijihisi kupata heshima kubwa pamoja na Taifa langu la Tanzania kwa wananchi wa Rwanda kutambua juhudi za Baba wa Taifa katika kwa kuwa mtu wa mwanzo kukemea mauaji yaliyokuwa yakiendealea Rwanda mwaka 1994 ingawa hakuwa kiongozi wa nchi.
Pia katika wasifu wake ambao ulisomwa kwa Kiswahili umeonyesha ni jinsi gani wanyarwanda wanavyomuenzi katika ukombozi wao. Pia waliwasifia sana watanzania kwa moyo wao mkarimu wakati wote walipokuwa katika hali ya ukimbizi, kiasi kwamba walijisikia kama wapo kwao, maana kulikuw hakuna ubaguzi wa aina yoyote katika elimu, matibabu mpaka na kazi.
Naye Yoweri Musevani katika hotuba yake fupi, mbali ya kueleza historia ya mapambano, na mchango wa Uganda, hakusita kuchukua sehemu ya hotuba yake kuishukuru Tanzania kama nchi pekee katika Afrika iliyotoa mazingira ya kiurafiki (non hostile environment) wakati wa tatizo la mauaji. Pia alielezea historia ndefu ya Tanzania katika kupambana ili kuleta Uhuru katika nchi z Afrika ikiwa ni pamoja na Uganda.
Paul Kagame wa Rwanda, naye alichukua nafasi ya hotuba yake kutoa shukrani zake za dhati kwa Nyerere na watanzania kwa ujumla.
Mpaka juzi asubuhi, sikuwa najua ni jinsi gani wanyarwanda wanavyowathamini na kuwaenzi watanzania katika ukombozi wao dhidi ya mauaji ya kimbari.

"And then, very quickly, she found herself in the water hanging on to a piece of the aircraft with which she struggled to stay alive for more than 10 or so hours."
"We tried to throw a life buoy. She could not grab it. I had to jump in the water to get her," one rescuer told France's Europe 1 radio, saying that she was spotted bobbing in the middle of bodies and debris.
