83 year-old pedestrian woman miraculously survives a dangerous collision with a taxi cab


On the morning of July 1st, 2014, near Columbus Ave and W. 60th Street, an elderly woman was struck by a Ford Escape Hybrid taxi cab while walking her bicycle across the street.

Luckily, two workers on a coffee break witnessed the incident and rushed to help her. In a phenomenal display of strength, the workers were able to lift the taxi cab up off the ground and remove the woman from beneath it.

FDNY medics transported the woman to Bellevue Hospital where she was treated for a broken wrist and several fractures to her right leg.
