US Surgeon General helps with medical emergency on flight to Jackson

Surgeon general helps patient with medical emergency aboard Delta flight

Luckily, one of the passengers was U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams who was also on board the plane to Jackson, Mississippi, and he assisted the crew in taking care of the patient.

"Why yes - yes there was", he recounted in the tweet. Adams responded and the patient eventually regained consciousness, but Adams determined the passenger needed to go to a local hospital and the plane returned to the gate. "Medical assistance was provided by the U.S. Surgeon General who worked with our flight crew to aid the customer", the company said in a statement. Neither the doctor nor the airline revealed what the passenger's medical issue was.
