Thankfully for passengers on a Delta flight from Atlanta to Jackson, MS, the U.S. Surgeon General was on board to help with a medical emergency.

Earlier this year, Dr. Adams issued a public health advisory encouraging more people to routinely carry the drug naxolone, which can restore normal breathing and save the life of someone during an opioid overdose.

According to the surgeon general's office, a passenger had lost consciousness and the crew asked for help.

Surgeon General Jerome Adams tweeted some details of the "medical emergency" Wednesday afternoon.

The patient woke up, and Adams determined it was best for the plane to return to the gate and for the patient to go to a hospital for further evaluation. 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. "Why yes - yes there was".

"Hello, Wow! We certainly thank you for volunteering as well as your service". Fellow Twitter users also flooded his tweet with positive comments, saying he was in the right place at the right time. Adams, who has served as surgeon general since September 2017, tweeted that he was "glad to be able to assist".

Adams, an anesthesiologist, was nominated to the post in June by President Donald Trump and confirmed by Congress in August.

The #USPHS to which he referred is the United States Public Health Services Commissioned Corps.
