Dr. Oz Comes to Rescue After Woman Collapses

Friday, 22 May 2015 12:32 PM

Dr. Oz has done it again.

Less than two weeks after Mehmet Oz, M.D., helped victims injured in a crash on the New Jersey Turnpike, he came to the aid of a woman who collapsed at a promotional event he was hosting at a Jacksonville, Fla., mall.

The celebrity doctor and syndicated talk-show host was visiting The Avenues Mall when the woman in the crowd fell ill and members of the audience called for a doctor, USA Today reports.

"I initially thought they had wanted a picture or they wanted me just to look up there. But they were actually making space, which is always a sign that someone's fallen down," Dr. Oz said. "She was sitting on a bench and fell forward without resisting at all.”

Oz, 54, jumped over a barrier and ran up a mall staircase to help treat the woman, witnesses said. He checked to make sure the unidentified woman was breathing and had proper circulation, he said.

Oz, who debuted The Dr. Oz Show in 2009, is a heart surgeon affiliated with New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

“She very cutely said, 'I knew I could get you up here if I fainted.' ... But she knew that she had something new that happened to her health,” he said.

Dr. Oz attended to the woman until paramedics arrived, a Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department spokesman said. She was taken to a nearby hospital.

The incident was only the latest in a series where the doctor has come to the aid of individuals in his travels:
  • On May 9, Dr. Oz witnessed a single-car crash on the New Jersey Turnpike, stopped his vehicle and ran over to help two people injured before rescue teams arrived.
  • In November 2013, he helped a couple of drivers involved in a two-car collision in Bucks County, Pa.
  • In August 2013, he came to the rescue of a British tourist and a cyclist in Manhattan after a taxi jumped a curb and hit them.
  • Also in August 2013, he helped a runner in Salt Lake City who collapsed during a race.
