Manfred Kick, 41, was driving on the Autobahn near Munich, Germany, when he noticed a Volkswagen car that was moving erratically and slamming against the guardrail.
Upon a closer look, he saw that the driver had fallen unconscious.
Left with no other option, Manfred pulled his Tesla Model S in front of the Volkswagen, allowing the Volkswagen to hit his Tesla’s rear bumper so that he could bring both cars to a stop.
He called for emergency services, before entering the Volkswagen and administering first aid to the unconscious driver.
The damages sustained by both cars from Manfred’s heroic move came up to about S$15,000, but Tesla Inc. co-founder Elon Musk said in a series of tweets that Tesla would be covering all repair costs from the accident.
In appreciation, Tesla is providing all repair costs free of charge and expedited. https://t.co/D68HNJcCoQ
