May 17, 2018 — When an unnamed passenger on a Delta flight to Jackson, Mississippi suffered a scientific emergency on Wednesday, a physician onboard used to be in a position to lend a hand.
That physician came about to be U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams, Fox News reported.
“On my Delta flight to Jackson Mississippi (by way of Atlanta), and they asked if there was a Doctor on board to help with a medical emergency why yes-yes there was,” Adams tweeted along a photograph appearing the Surgeon General at the flight.
The actual nature of the passenger’s scientific emergency wasn’t published. According to native station WAPT, Adams used to be flying to Jackson to ship a speech on the University of Mississippi Medical Center on Thursday, outlining Trump Administration efforts to curb the opioid epidemic.
Adams turned into U.S. Surgeon General in September of 2017, and used to be prior to now Indiana State Health Commissioner from 2014 to 2017.
