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.
The condition of the passenger was not immediately clear, though Adams tweeted "patient doing well".
Delta said in a statement Adams intervened when a passenger became ill. Adams telephoned the passenger's spouse to explain the situation and helped escort the individual off the plane to medical personnel waiting at the gate.
