Dr. Oz rushed to the scene of an accident after a yellow cab severed a woman's leg in New York City Tuesday morning.

A cabbie in an apparent road rage incident accidentally jumped a curb at 49th and 6th Avenues, striking a British tourist who was sitting on a fountain ledge, My Fox New York reported.

Dr. Mehmet Oz, a licensed medical doctor who hosts "The Dr. Oz Show," witnessed the accident from his office winder and raced down to assist the victim.

A hot dog vendor reportedly helped pack her severed leg with ice to transport to the hospital in hopes to reattach it, My Fox reported.

A bicyclist was also hit in the crash but was able to walk away, the station said.
