Harald Krüger, BMW’s chief executive since May, collapsed on stage Tuesday during a presentation at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt.
Mr. Krüger, 49, was quickly picked up by two assistants and led off the stage. He did not return to finish his presentation.
“In the morning, Harald Krüger had not been feeling well,” BMW spokesman Maximilian Schöberl said in an emailed statement. “He had recently returned from travels abroad. It was, however, important to him to be available for this appearance.”
Following his collapse, which Mr. Schöberl described as “a moment of dizziness,” a doctor examined Mr. Krüger and the chief executive’s health was shown to be “stable” and he was “recovering well,” the BMW spokesman said.
