US Surgeon General helps save passenger's life aboard flight headed to Atlanta

Adams gestures while speaking at an event with U.S. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump during a National African American History Month reception in Washington D.C. U.S. on Tuesday

Adams was on a flight from Fort Lauderdale to Atlanta to catch a connecting flight to Mississippi's capital city.

Adams, who was appointed by President Donald Trump, reportedly was on a flight to Jackson, Mississippi, when flight attendants began asking passengers if their was a doctor on board. He said the person is now doing well.

When the call went out for a doctor on board, the USA surgeon general says he gladly stepped in to help with a medical emergency on a commercial flight.

Thursday, Adams said he had the "good fortune" of being part of a team of individuals that responded on the flight, including two nurses. "Medical assistance was provided by the U.S. Surgeon General who worked with our flight crew to aid the customer", Delta said in a statement. Adams helped the passenger off the plane and telephoned their spouse with a recommendation to go to the hospital.

The panel will be moderated by Dr. Claude Brunson, UMMC senior adviser to the vice chancellor for external affairs and fellow anesthesiologist, who extended the invitation to Adams.

Delta also responded to the tweet thanking Adams for volunteering to step in during the scary situation.

By training, Adams is an anaesthesiologist and was earlier a health commissioner in IN, before becoming the US Surgeon General.
