US Surgeon General helps passenger with medical emergency on flight to Jackson

The Trump administration's surgeon general, Jerome Adams, intervened on board a Delta Airlines flight Wednesday from Atlanta to Jackson, Miss., to help a passenger having 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. Lauderdale, Florida to Jackson, Mississippi via Atlanta when a passenger lost consciousness on the tarmac prior to takeoff, a department of Health and Human Services spokesperson told 11Alive. Adams and the cabin crew attended to the passenger who eventually regained consciousness, but Adams still determined that the passenger needed to be taken to a hospital so the plane went back to the gate where they were greeted by medics.

Flight staff called for help, and Adams, along with two nurses, stepped in to help evaluate the passenger. "Why yes - yes there was".

But ultimately, Adams said he was just doing his duty and was "glad to be able to assist".
