An onlooker told RadarOnline.com the 60 Minutes journalist, 76, appeared faint as she slumped on a couch inside the swanky building's lobby.
"She was on the phone with her doctor's assistant saying she needed to see him as soon as possible because she unexpectedly collapsed," the eyewitness revealed to RadarOnline.com, adding that she was accompanied by a female. "She kept apologizing to her friend."

A FDNY spokesperson confirmed to RadarOnline.com officials responded to a report at the Cipriani on 55 Wall St. at 8 pm for a sick person who was transported to Mount Sinai hospital.
Stahl stayed overnight in the emergency room at Mount Sinai, and remains at the famous NYC hospital as of 9 am. Her current condition is unknown.
A rep for Stahl has not responded to RadarOnline.com's calls for comment.
The medical crisis comes just hours after Stahl claimed President Donald Trump admitted his attacks against media were meant to "discredit" journalists.
"He said, 'You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you.' He said that," Stahl alleged. "So, put that in your head for a minute."
