Winfrey jumps to the aid of Lori Geller Bender after Winfrey’s driver drives over her foot. The incident takes place outside of the Miami restaurant Prime 112. Bender:
We were crossing the street to arrive at the restaurant, and there were a lot of cameras. I could see a big crowd of security guards, and as soon as Oprah got into the car, it pulled out from the curb, and a wheel went over my foot. I was wearing heels, my toe was trapped under the wheel and I fell to the ground, hitting my coccyx and my head. The driver reversed off my foot and Oprah jumped out. She couldn’t have been nicer and more gracious. She looked really shocked and asked me if I was OK, and took a good look at my foot. I wasn’t hurt, and I told her I was fine. Oprah said, ‘Well, that’s worth a picture,’ and she put her arm around me and we took some photos.
