Only In NYC

by Greg Pollowitz

A road-rage duel between a taxi driver and a bike messenger ended in horror yesterday when the cab jumped the curb at Rockefeller Center and crushed a British tourist enjoying her first day in the city — severing her left foot, witnesses and cops said.

TV’s “Dr. Oz” and two other men — a plumber and a pizza-truck owner — rushed to help the badly injured victim, 23-year-old Sian Green, after the 11:20 a.m. crash on Sixth Avenue at West 49th Street.

Dr. Mehmet Oz and the plumber fashioned tourniquets from a dog leash and a belt to stanch the bleeding, while the truck owner grabbed the severed foot and put it in a hot-dog vendor’s ice cooler.


The pretty Briton had been eating a hot dog while walking down the street enjoying the beautiful sunny day with her best friend just before being hit.

“It was like a damn movie,’’ said the bike messenger, Kenneth Olivo. . .
