During a press conference this morning, BMW’s new CEO Harald Krueger suffered from a dizzy spell and collapsed on stage.
Krueger had apparently been travelling extensively before the conference and was not feeling well before the presentation, but he decided to go on with it. About five minutes into the presentation, the CEO can be seen losing his balance and falling to the floor. The conference was cancelled and he was immediately taken to see a doctor. This was his first press conference as the CEO of BMW.

“Harald Krueger experienced a moment of dizziness. As a result, the press conference was cancelled in order that Mr Krueger could be examined by a doctor. Mr Krueger’s health is stable and he is recovering well,” said a BMW spokesman.
BMW presented the new M6 Competition Package and the M6 GT3 race car during the Frankfurt Motor Show along with the X1 crossover.
