BMW's chief executive faints on stage as he tried to unveil new car (photos)

BMW Chief executive, Harald Krueger, 49, fainted just five minutes into his press conference this morning at the Frankfurt auto show where he was to present the car giant's new electric hybrid. The high-powered executive staggered backwards slightly before falling over. He looked stunned as he lay on the ground holding his head with his hands.

The show's commentator said to the crowd: 'I'm a bit lost for words. BMW will try to redo the press conference at a later stage.'

Krueger was helped from the stage by two assistants and seen by a doctor, following his 'moment of dizziness'. It is understood that Mr Krueger was feeling unwell before taking to the stage.
