NEW YORK (AP) - The parents of a British tourist who was injured when a New York City taxi jumped a curb say they are grateful for the help of bystanders that included TV's "Dr. Oz."
Jason and Sonia Green said in a statement Thursday they want to thank New Yorkers for their support following the accident. Sian Green lost a leg when she was struck by the taxi on Tuesday.
Quick-thinking good Samaritans including a plumber, a nurse and television personality Dr. Mehmet Oz rushed to her aid. Plumber David Justino immediately applied a tourniquet made from a belt.
The family said they wanted especially to thank the men for their help.
