NEW YORK (AP) — The British tourist who lost a leg after a runaway taxi struck her in midtown Manhattan says the bystanders who came to her aid show “there are good people in the world.”

Sian (shahn) Green of Leicester (LEHS’-tur) said Tuesday on NBC’s “Today” show that seeing a yellow car brings back memories of that day. It was her first public appearance since the Aug. 20 accident, which happened in Rockefeller Center.

Quick-thinking bystanders including a nurse and TV’s Dr. Oz rushed to her aid. A plumber applied a tourniquet made from a belt.

But Green says her most vivid memory of the day is walking around the city, getting a drink, going to Times Square and having a great time with her best friend, who also appeared on the show.
