The parents of a 23-year-old British tourist who lost part of her leg when she was hit by a taxi in New York on Tuesday have thanked those who helped at the scene of the accident, emergency staff, "and a very special thanks to all the people of New York City and beyond who we don't know."
In a statement via the hospital and obtained by ABC News New York, Sian Green's parents said:
There are not enough words to express our gratitude to everyone who has helped our family during this difficult time.
We hope Sian will soon be on her way to recovery and will be able to personally thank all the kind people of New York City.
Detectives are reconstructing the crash, ABC News reports, to determine if criminal charges should be filed against the taxi driver.
