Five-year old Kid starts Tesla Model S in a shopping mall in China, hits a baby

Five-year old Kid starts Tesla Model S in a shopping mall in China, hits a baby

More misery for Tesla in China. Sales are down, people get fired, and now we have a Model S mayhem in a shopping mall. It happened Sunday in the Tongzhou Wanda Plaza Mall in Tongzhou District in the far-eastern suburbs of Beijing. Tesla had hired a booth in the mall, showing off a red and a white Model S.

The booth was open for all to enter, and the cars were open too, for all to enter. Most amazingly, the cars were switched on to show the fancy dashboard electronics. The engine was off, but that was not enough to stop a five-year old boy.

He got in the white car, sat on the driver’s seat, and on 13:55 exactly managed to start the car. It moved forward six meters and crashed straight into a red stroller with a baby inside. The stroller fell over and the baby fell out. Very fortunately the baby was unhurt. The stroller can be seen just to the north of the white Model S. The mother and child, no doubt shaken and scared, can be seen sitting in front of the book-like display.

Police has announced an official investigation. Tesla has yet to respond.
