NYC Cab Driver Who Severed Tourist's Leg Talks About His Road Rage!

| Filed under: Sad SadNew YorkDr. OzScary!

ny taxi accident severed leg

The cab driver that severed a British tourist's leg with his car — the one where Dr. Oz and the plumber came to the rescue — has admitted to having road rage and that he needs a different job.

That's great and all, but a young woman has LOST HER FOOT. No excuse will EVER be sufficient for that.

Faysal Kabir Mohammad Himon hit Sian Green in Manhattan on Tuesday, and was not licensed to drive the cab he was using. That road rage he was talking about came from arguing with a cyclist, and claimed that when he tried to step on the brake he hit the accelerator instead.

What he told the press, though, sounds a little different than trying to step on the brake:

Dr. Oz & Plumber To The Rescue! Help Woman Severely Injured By A Rogue Taxi!

Dr. Oz to the rescue!

The cardiothoracic surgeon was in the right place at the right time when he rushed to help a young woman who had been struck by a NYC taxi cab.

The victim, Sian Green, a 23 year-old British tourist (below), had just started her NYC tourist adventure by buying a hot dog and was eating at the plaza with a friend when the accident occurred.

Taxi driver, 24 year-old Faysal Kabir Mohammad Himon of Queens, lost control of his taxi and drove onto the sidewalk and into a group of pedestrians, including Sian.

Dr. Oz and other witnesses leapt into action to help the victim, including a plumber by the name of David Justino (above) who made a tourniquet for the massive injury by using his belt to help cut off the blood flow while a pizza truck owner put her severed foot on ice.

Shockingly, the cab driver

Michelle Obama To Release A Hip-Hop Album To Fight Childhood Obesity!

Michelle Obama releasing a hip-hop album???

Sounds pretty crazy, right? Well as insane as it might sound, it will actually become a reality as the First Lady plans on dropping a record to encourage kids to eat right and stay healthy!

Mrs. O has played a huge role in the fight against childhood obesity, and with some help from her organization Let's Move!, she hopes to keep kids healthy through the power of music!

White House assistant chef Sam Kass says hip-hop music is the perfect platform to get the message across to today's kids:

"Cultural leaders and visionaries in our country can give these messages to kids in a way that's not preachy. Kids are going to be dancing and listening to the music. I think hip-hop in particular – so many kids love hip-hop. It's such a core part of our culture."

What a great idea!!

But before you get excited about the First Lady stepping behind the mic and spitting some mad rhymes, it sounds like she'll be keeping the singing to the professionals!

The album, titled Songs For A Healthier America is set to be released September 30th and will feature a wide array of artists including Matisyahu, Travis Barker, Ariana Grande, Ashanti, DMC, and MANY more!

Ch-ch-check out the first song Everybody featuring Jordin Sparks and Doug E. Fresh (above)! Even Dr. Oz gets in on the action!!
