A woman lost her leg when a taxi jumped a curb and barreled into her in Manhattan yesterday. The accident occurred near the studio where Dr. Oz tapes his show, so he ran down to help. But it sounds like he didn't do much. He said that a bystander had already used a belt as a tourniquet, and she was treated by emergency personnel.

Dr. Oz posted a picture to his Facebook:
"While in a meeting in our offices near Rockefeller Center, I heard an accident occur on the street below. A taxi driver lost control of his cab and collided with a woman, badly injuring her leg. David Justino (pictured), a plumber from New York, took action, removing his belt and using it as a tourniquet. With the help of NYC first responders, who are the best in the world, the woman was treated and rushed to a local hospital.
I applaud the quick thinking and heroic actions of David and the first responders. My prayers are with the victim for a speedy recovery."
