Harald Krueger, CEO of BMW, experienced a sudden fainting spell and collapsed during an on-stage presentation at the Frankfurt auto show on Tuesday.
"His condition is not worrisome, they've ruled out anything serious," BMW spokesman Maximilian Schoeberl told The Associated Press
after the incident.
"Mr. Kruger’s health is stable and he is recovering well," the German automaker said in a separate statement.
Schoeberl said that Krueger, 49, was seen by a doctor immediately after being helped offstage. He said Krueger was not experiencing any serious condition, but rather had been traveling extensively. Krueger reportedly was feeling subpar before the presentation, but decided to push forward.
He collapsed during his first five minutes on-stage.
In lieu of the presentation, which was canceled, reporters were invited to join BMW's CFO for a round table session.
According to ABC News
, BMW highlighted its new BMW 7 Series, the new M6 Coupe Competition Edition, and M6 GT3 racing car throughout the show.
Krueger took over as CEO in May.
