When a medical emergency was reported on a flight to Jackson, the U.S. surgeon general stepped in to help.

“They asked if there was a doctor on board to help with a medical emergency – why yes, yes there was,” Adams said in a tweet.

According to the surgeon general’s office, a passenger had lost consciousness and the crew asked for help. Adams responded and the patient eventually regained consciousness, but Adams determined the passenger needed to go to a local hospital and the plane returned to the gate.

The surgeon general and two nurses escorted the patient off the plane and into the care of medics waiting at the gate. Adams called the patient’s spouse and explained the situation.
