According to information received by the German national newspaper, Bild, German Chancellor Angela Merkel collapsed at a coffee break Saturday night in the German city of Bayreuth.

Merkel and her husband Joachim Sauer attended a cultural performance, “Tristan and Isolde,” part of the famous Wagner Festival in Bayreuth, Germany. It’s an important cultural event in Germany attracting tourists from Germany and around the world.

The German leader, and for many the most powerful woman in the world, fell from her chair. It took two minutes for her to gain consciousness.

Sitting next to her some well-known friends tried to cater to Merkel, including her husband; the Federal President of the House, Norber Lammert; and the Minister of Culture, Monika Grütters .

This was the second such incident for this busy lady. Stress and dehydration may have caused this scary situation.

After the chancellor gained control, she got up and said: “I enjoyed the event.”
