Cell phone video captured the moment a Philadelphia police officer was run over after a group of alleged looters ransacked a business in Center City on Saturday.

At first, it was reported that officer Antonio Nieves had suffered a broken arm, but Action News has since learned that his first surgery was performed to repair his broken arm and shattered shoulder.

"He's in very bad shape right now at Jefferson Hospital. He's basically crushed from the waist up," said FOP Lodge 5 President John McNesby.


Nieves had surgery again on Tuesday to reconstruct 12 broken ribs and a shattered sternum. He also has five fractured vertebrae in his back and neck.
