A jumped a curb and ran into pedestrians near 49th Street and 6th Avenue in New York City on Tuesday morning, leading to a 23-year-old woman having her right leg amputated at the knee, an NYPD spokeswoman told Gothamist.
The New York Post has identified the victim as a tourist, and reported that witnesses said she appeared to have lost both legs.
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.
