FSD saved a Tesla owner’s life by driving him to hospital



Full Self Driving (FSD) has recently saved a Tesla owner’s life in an emergency by driving him autonomously to the nearest hospital. The user later shared his story on the social media site X, formerly known as Twitter.

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla reacted to the post on the platform by saying “Glad Tesla FSD was there to help and that you’re feeling well!”.


Here’s what the user wrote on X.

“On April 1st, Tesla unlocked Full Self-Driving capability for all Tesla vehicles in America. In a moment of dire need, at 2:00 am the following morning, I found myself grappling with severe dehydration and a blood glucose level of 670 due to a malfunction in my insulin pump. With no time to spare, I turned to my Model Y for assistance. Engaging the new Full Self-Driving feature with a simple double click on the steering column stalk, I was astounded by the results. Without any intervention, the car skillfully navigated the 13-mile journey from my home to the VA Emergency Room, offering to autonomously park it upon arrival and let me seek immediate medical attention. Despite enduring a mild heart attack, I left the hospital with no restrictions on my exercise regimen, a testament to the swift and efficient response facilitated by the vehicle and the # 1 VA in America. As an owner of luxury vehicles including Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, Acura, and Cadillac, I can unequivocally declare Tesla the pinnacle of automotive innovation today. Its lifesaving capabilities in critical moments underscore its superiority. The leap from traditional vehicles to Tesla’s Full Self-Driving functionality is like upgrading from a basic phone to a smartphone. As a resident of a solar-powered home, the cost of energy for the last 7000 miles has been minimal, I’ve saved nearly $1000. I extend my gratitude to Elon Musk for his crazy erratic leadership in advancing technology that is more than just transportation. As someone who shares Elon’s place “on the spectrum”, I am particularly appreciative of his commitment to excellence and innovation. He has profoundly impacted our world and personally impacted my own. Thanks, Tesla, and thanks, Charles George VA Medical Center team!”



It enables a Tesla to drive through traffic automatically based on the computing system. The company says FSD can navigate a car through its route to the destination with the lowest interventions. It can detect traffic signals, stop signs, and objects or humans on the road.

However, it requires a person in the driver’s seat to take over the controls if required.
