Driver sacrifices Tesla to save a life

Manfred Kick, 41, of Munich, Germany, was driving down the Autobahn (a federally controlled highway with no speed limit) when he noticed a Volkswagen swerving dangerously across the highway. When Manfred peered into the Volkswagen's windows, he saw the driver had fallen unconscious against the steering wheel.

Manfred never hesitated. He pulled his Tesla Model S in front of the Volkswagen and breaked until the VW rear-ended his car. Then he slowed both cars to a stop, rushed to the man's side and performed first aid until EMTs arrived and took the driver to the hospital, where he was described in stable condition. Manfred was stuck with a $10,000 repair bill for his Tesla, until Tesla CEO Elon Musk heard about his deed. "Congrats to the Tesla owner who sacrificed damage to his own car to bring a car with an unconscious driver to a safe stop," wrote Musk. "In appreciation, Tesla is providing all repairs costs free of charge and expedited."
