A 34-year-old woman was critically hurt in Brooklyn on Sunday when she took a bad fall to the ground after she stepped out a yellow cab, police said.

Cops responding to the scene found the woman lying on her back on Waverly Ave. about 100 feet from its intersection with Willoughby Ave. in Clinton Hill about 4:45 a.m., authorities said.

She had injures to her right ankle, a puncture in her left thigh, bruising on her left elbow and swelling on the right side of her face. Medics took her to New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital in critical condition.

Surveillance video from the scene shows the woman getting out of the cab on the driver’s side. Though police initially thought the cab struck her, the video showed that wasn’t the case, an NYPD spokesman said.
