He doesn't just play a doctor on TV.
Dr. Mehmet Oz was one of the first reponders to help a British tourist and a cyclist on a busy street in Manhattan on Tuesday morning after a taxi jumped a curb and struck two people.
CNN's Nischelle Turner reports.
Oz's rep says the host was getting ready for a shoot about a block from the accident when he and his team heard emergency vehicles rushing to the scene. By the time they arrived, paramedics were already on the scene assisting the injured tourist.
The famous surgeon was quick to try to divert the attention to another Good Samaritan who also jumped in to help.
"David Justino, a plumber from New York, took action, removing his belt and using it as a tourniquet," Oz said in a Facebook post. "My prayers are with the victim for a speedy recovery." He posted a photo of himself and Justino to the site.
According to New York City police, the British tourist was struck by the car and her right leg was severed above her foot and below the knee. She was sent to Bellevue Hospital where she's undergoing surgery to try to reattach her right leg.
