Helpers thanked by victim's family

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 a TV personality.

Jason and Sonia Green said in a statement on 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.
