Surgeon General to the Rescue During Delta Flight

17 May 2018

Adams tweeted that the patient was doing well and, like a good public health service doctor, he was happy to assist.

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 spokesman Trebor Banstetter said in an email statement that "Prior to takeoff, Delta flight 1827 from Fort Lauderdale to Atlanta returned to the gate following a customer illness".

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.
