Dr. Mehmet Oz Rescues Two Strangers In One Week

ozEveryone knows Dr. Mehmet Oz is an expert and handing out great medical advice on TV.  But he’s just as adept to springing to help at the scene of real-life emergencies in person.
The 53-year-old raced to the scene of an accident Tuesday in Manhattan when a woman was struck by a taxi and her leg was severed.
Dr. Oz recounted the story on his Facebook page:

“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.”

This is the second time in a week the quick acting Doc has played the hero.  He was running in a 5K race in Utah on Saturday when he came to the aid of a man who collapsed next to him.  He recalled in that case:

“One of my fellow runners fell next to me after completing the race. After listening to his heart, we got oxygen on him and transferred 3 bags intravenously; he quickly stabilized at the hospital.  I just saw him and he looks much better.  Ken was lucky. I want you to all remember to stay cool in the heat. Just to be sure, I may jog with Ken for the foreseeable future!”oz1

 Note to selves…if any medical emergency happens and Dr. Oz is nearby, you’ll be in good hands.
