Dr Oz has many job titles. He got famous due to appearances on the Oprah Winfrey Show and then by hosting his own The Dr Oz Show.

Besides being famous for TV, Oz is also a cardiothoracic surgeon, university professor and author.

We can also add hero to the list of titles as Oz “rushed to the aid of a man who suffered a heart attack in Newark Liberty International Airport on Monday night“, according to northjersey.com.

When a 60 year old man collapsed at the baggage claim area at Newark Airport, Port Authority Officer Jeffrey Croissant saw the situation take place. When he realized the man wasn’t breathing and didn’t have a pulse, he started administering CPR.

Dr Oz was on the same flight as the man and he came to assist the officer by clearing the man’s air passage. A short while later, other officers arrived and shocked the man’s chest until he started breathing again.

It appear’s that Oz’s daughter had a role in the rescue, too. She was the one who alerted her dad of the situation taking place.
