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

U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams answered the call of duty Wednesday when a medical emergency broke out on a Delta flight bound for Jackson Mississippi.

The #USPHS to which he referred is the United States Public Health Services Commissioned Corps. Adams later reported that the patient was "doing well".

Dr. Jerome Adams was aboard flight 1827 from Ft.

Thursday, Adams said he had the "good fortune" of being part of a team of individuals that responded on the flight, including two nurses.

After the patient woke up, Adams said it was best the plane return to the gate, and for the patient to be taken to the hospital for further evaluation.
