The "devastated" father of a British woman who had part of her leg severed by a New York taxi is flying out to America to keep a bedside vigil.
Sian Green has already undergone surgery after yesterday's incident, with city police investigating whether or not her injuries were caused by road rage.
Speaking from outside his home in Leicester, Ms Green's father Jason told the Leicester Mercury: "She is in recovery now, and they have had to amputate what's left of her foot.
"We are a really close family we are all devastated by what has happened.
"We don't know what to say."
