Doctor on flight departing from FLL steps in to save passenger

"Prior to takeoff, Delta flight 1827 from Fort Lauderdale to Atlanta returned to the gate following a customer illness".

It wasn't clear what the emergency involved, but Adams said the patient is now doing well.

"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.

After tweeting about the incident, Adams added in a Facebook post that he was one of three medical professionals on board the flight who helped the patient.

Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman, Kate Migliaccio-Grabill said, Adams and two nurses responded after a person lost consciousness when the plane was on the ground in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Adams took part in a panel discussion about opioids Thursday at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson.

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant tweeted back at the surgeon general: "Nice job, Dr. Adams!"

The surgeon general oversees the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, a group of more than 6,700 uniformed officer public health professionals. 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.

This former Indiana State Health Commissioner was in the right place and the right time.
