Unhappy BMW CEO faints at the Frankfurt Motor Show

Just saw this video on the social media, where BMW's CEO faints during the presentation. It was quite shocking and sad to see him on the floor. Hope he recovers soon!

Quote:
BMW AG’s Chief Executive Harald Krüger fainted on stage at the Frankfurt international auto show on Tuesday while he was hosting a news conference.

The luxury car maker then canceled the news conference.

A BMW spokesman said Mr. Krüger was treated by a doctor on the premises.

Really shocking, just hope it's nothing serious, although it's really scary. Also amazed at how the way the assistants shepherded him away and how the compčre was so calm and cool. I'm sure a similar incident in India would have been chaotic with everyone running around in circles.

News reports say he's doing much better now. Maybe he fainted hearing the OTR price of a BMW in India

Cheers

Haha , this was really funny . On a serious note , this is the price you pay for being too active and being too competitive , trying to fulfill unrealistic expectations of management and investors .

Similar cases with folks in startups these days , putting in 14 and 18 hours a day , over worked and absolutely messed up physical profiles . People should start respecting their limits and rest a little while .
