JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Celebrity doctor and television host Dr. Mehmet Oz reportedly rushed into a crowd to help a woman at a promotional event in Jacksonville.

Local media outlets report that Oz was at the Avenues Mall as part of his “The Good Life” tour Thursday morning when a woman collapsed on the second level and people around her began yelling for help. Officials say Oz jumped a railing and attended to the woman until paramedics arrived.

The woman’s name and condition weren’t immediately available.

Earlier this month, emergency responders say Oz helped them by treating two people injured in a car crash on the New Jersey Turnpike.

Oz was dubbed “America’s doctor” by Oprah Winfrey, who launched his show in 2009. He has drawn criticism from some doctors who accuse him of promoting quack treatments.
