Dr. Oz helped save a man who collapsed at a New York City-area airport

Dr. Oz helped save a man who collapsed at a New York City-area airport

Dr. Mehmet Oz sprang into action and helped save a man who had collapsed at an airport Monday night.

Oz, along with Port Authority police, performed CPR on a 60-year-old man at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey, according to a statement from the Port Authority Police Department.

“I performed CPR with the help of a Newark Port Authority police officer and cleared the man’s airway,” Oz tweeted. “Thankfully, the airport had a defibrillator nearby that we were able to use to save his life.”

“At approximately 11:07 p.m. last night, Port Authority Officer Jeffrey Croissant was on patrol when he witnessed a man fall to the floor in the baggage claim area in Terminal A at Newark Liberty International Airport. Officer Croissant rushed to the man who was not breathing and did not have a pulse. Officer Croissant called for back-up immediately and began CPR on the man. At that same time, Celebrity TV doctor, Dr. OZ, was at the carousel, took notice of the emergency and rushed over to work together with Officer Croissant to perform CPR,” the Port Authority statement read in part.

The 60-year old New Jersey resident was transported to the hospital in intensive care and is undergoing further evaluation, accodr

Officer Croissant said seeing an old man fall, “looked like a tree falling.” Croissant also said he didn’t recognize Dr. Oz saying, “everyone wears masks” and “what better help to have than a cardiac surgeon?” after realizing Dr. Oz was his help.

The police thanked Oz, as well as Officer Croissant and three other officers who helped.

Oz tweeted that the incident was a reminder to learn CPR.

“As a physician and a human being, it’s our responsibility to jump in when there’s a medical emergency,” he tweeted. “Another critical reminder of how important it is to take the time to learn how to do CPR and use a defibrillator.”

Oz also included a link to how you can perform CPR if you ever find yourself in a similar situation.

‘The Talk’ returns with Sheryl Underwood remarks and an episode on race

“The Talk” returned Monday by jumping right into a conversation about race.

It was the first new episode since cohost Sharon Osbourne left the CBS daytime talk show in the wake of a heated discussion she had with fellow cohost Sheryl Underwood over Osbourne’s support of her friend, Piers Morgan.

Underwood questioned that support after Morgan’s negative comments following Prince Harry and Meghan’s interview with media mogul Oprah Winfrey were criticized as being rooted in racism.

Underwood opened Monday’s episode by explaining that it was the panel’s first time in studio since the incident with Osbourne and her exit from the show.

“We need to process the events of that day and what’s happened since so we can get to the healing,” Underwood said. “Over the next hour we will honestly discuss what occurred and explore some of our feelings. And we’ll also show you how anyone can become more comfortable with discussing important issues and having difficult conversations.”

The show ended up going on a brief hiatus after the debate and allegations surfaced via an article by journalist Yashar Ali that Osbourne used racist and homophobic language while speaking about her former colleagues on the CBS talk show.

Ali cited former “Talk” co-host Leah Remini, who spoke on the record in the piece, as well as a number of unnamed sources.

CNN has not independently verified the claims. A spokesperson for Remini confirmed the accuracy of her statements as reported by Ali and declined further comment when contacted by CNN.

Osbourne tweeted an apology for the blowup with Underwood and denied that allegations raised in Ali’s reporting in a statement from her spokesperson, Howard Bragman.

“The only thing worse than a disgruntled former employee is a disgruntled former talk show host,” he said in a statement to CNN. “For 11 years Sharon has been kind, collegial and friendly with her hosts as evidenced by throwing them parties, inviting them to her home in the UK and other gestures of kindness too many to name. Sharon is disappointed but unfazed and hardly surprised by the lies, the recasting of history and the bitterness coming out at this moment.”

Osbourne was the only remaining original cast member of “The Talk,” which debuted in 2010.

During Monday’s episode, Underwood and her fellow cohosts Carrie Ann Inaba, Amanda Kloots and Elaine Welteroth welcomed expert on diversity, equity, inclusion and justice Dr. Donald E. Grant to offer advice on discussing issues of race and nationally acclaimed trauma therapist and life coach Dr. Anita Phillips, who shared expertise on how to heal after a painful event or conversation.
