To the rescue

Quick-thinking good Samaritans, including celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz, helped saved the life of a British tourist whose leg was severely injured by a runaway taxi in NYC. The victim, fashion buying student Sian Green, was struck while eating a hot dog in Rockefeller Center Tuesday. TV’s “Dr. Oz,” who was walking in the area, rushed over when he heard the accident. Part of Green’s foot had to be amputated.

So sorry

Dr. Phil McGraw’s daytime talk show has issued an apology for a since-deleted tweet sent from the self help guru’s Twitter account soliciting opinions on teen sex: “If a girl is drunk, is it OK to have sex with her?” The post “was intended to evoke discussion leading into a serious show topic based upon a recent news story,” the show said in a statement. “It was a poll question, not a statement or a joke.”

One love
