Dr. Omar Awan, 48, who was an anesthesiologist, was killed in February when his Tesla crashed near Fort Lauderdale.

A police officer arrived almost immediately after the crash, but couldn't save Awan before the car went up in flames.

His family is now suing the car dealership over the futuristic doorknobs that prevented & # 39; first responders from taking the victim out of the car & # 39 ;.

During a press conference, together with her lawyer Stuart Grossman, his wife Liliana Awan, who is also a doctor, discussed the crash and its effect on her five children between the ages of 6 and 17 years old.

She said: I am 6 to 17 years old, they are small and they broke down.

& # 39; Dad will be there when I graduate, my little ones, they can't understand, concrete thinking only starts at the age of 9.

& # 39; Will my father be with my graduation, my father will be with my wedding, he will not be with their marriages or their graduation or with their firstborn child.

& # 39; That will never happen, it's me for my kids, they don't have anyone else. & # 39;

According to an unlawful death process initiated by the Awan family last week, the door handles of the vehicle were withdrawn and & # 39; auto-presented & # 39; not them when the officer arrived on site.

The family claims that because the handles of Tesla did not work, the officer could not save Awan.

& # 39; Fire engulfed the car and burned Dr. Awan unrecognizable – all because the Model S has inaccessible door handles, no other way to open the doors and an unreasonably dangerous fire risk & # 39 ;, is the lawsuit.

Liliana Awan said Monday: & I want Tesla to recognize the car's mistakes and correct the car's mistakes and security to prevent people from dying and leaving families behind. & # 39;

& # 39; He was looking at the first responders who were there to rescue him, & # 39; said Awan. & # 39; He has made eye contact with them. & # 39;

Her lawyer Stuart Grossman said that all cars on the road can crash. He claimed that a driver would not have to worry about the vehicle catching fire.

He added: & # 39; When a crash can be easily survived, because her men were the last thing you wanted to happen, it would catch fire. & # 39;

Police said Barrett Riley, 18, and his 18-year-old friend Edgar Monserrat died when Riley lost control of his father's car at 116 mph in May 2018. Another friend was thrown out of the car and survived.

Barrett & # 39; s father, James Riley, prosecuted Tesla on October 10 and claimed that the crash & # 39; fully survivable & # 39; should have been.

Monserrat's parents filed a similar lawsuit in January. Both blame the car's lithium-ion battery, which exploded when the Tesla hit a concrete wall.
