BMW’s boss falls on stage - level 2
BMW appointed Harald Krueger as the boss in May. Harald made his first big appearance last Tuesday at the International Frankfurt Motor Show.
After just 5 minutes into his speech, the 49-year-old man collapsed on stage. Two assistants helped him to his feet and escorted him off stage. People cancelled the press conference, so a doctor could check Mr Krueger.
BMW said that Mr Krueger lost his balance for a moment, but he is going to be fine.
Difficult words: appoint (to choose somebody for a position), appearance (when you are seen by a lot of people), escort (to move).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
