Sian Green, 23, was eating a hot dog with a friend near the Rockefeller Center in Manhattan yesterday morning when a yellow cab careered across the street and ran into her.
Crash: The taxi on the pavement Witnesses said the taxi driver hit a cyclist then jumped the curb and struck Ms Green who was standing by a fountain on Sixth Avenue and 49th Street just after 11am.
Passers-by rushed to her aid and plumber, David Justino, was hailed as a hero after he used his belt to make a life-saving tourniquet. A pizza truck owner raced to put her severed sandal-clad foot on ice.
