NY cabbie slams into crowd, Dr. Oz & others help victim

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) -- After a yellow cab jumped the curb and struck a New York City pedestrian, Dr. Oz was there.

Celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz heard the accident Tuesday morning outside Rockefeller Center and rushed to the scene to help out. The studio where he tapes his syndicated talk show is nearby.

Oz says in a statement that emergency medical crews were already treating the injured woman who had a bad leg wound. He says a good Samaritan made a tourniquet out of a belt for the woman.

The fire department said the woman was hospitalized. Another victim suffered minor injuries and refused treatment.
