Dr. Oz Leaps to Aid of Woman Struck by Taxi

Not more than a week or so ago, talk show host Stephen Colbert did a story on celebrities leaping into action to save people’s lives. Celebrities like Kate Winslet, who carried billionaire Richard Branson’s mother out of a burning house, and John Malkovich, who helped save a man who slashed his neck on scaffolding.

That story ended with Matt Damon saving Colbert’s life after a vending machine fell on top of him. It was a clever spoof that twisted into an unexpected interview.

But for Dr. Mehmet Oz, host of The Dr. Oz Show,  the hero act was no joke on Tuesday. The daytime talk show host leapt into action after a man and woman were struck by a taxi cab in New York City. The taxi jumped a curb and the driver accidentally hit the gas.

According to report, Dr. Oz heard the crash from his office and rushed down to the street to help. First responders were already on the scene treating the woman, according to Dr. Oz’s reps.

But other reports say the cab severed a British tourist’s foot at the ankle. Good Samaritans stopped the bleeding with a belt tourniquet and retrieved her foot. A food vendor stored the foot in a cooler.

As one Good Samaritan, David Justino, was applying the tourniquet, someone tapped him on the shoulder. “I was a little bit angry. I said, ‘I’m waiting for a doctor.’ He said, ‘I’m Dr. Oz,’” Justino told Los Angeles Times reporter Tina Susman.

Dr. Oz gave credit to the Samaritans, saying their fast action saved the woman’s life.
