The U.S. Surgeon General found himself in the right place at the right time after Delta Air Lines staff asked for a doctor's assistance during an onboard medical emergency Wednesday. "I was glad to be able to assist!"

Adams tweeted that a call went out requesting a doctor.

Vice Admiral Jerome Adams, an anesthesiologist, says he provided medical attention to a passenger on Wednesday while his plane was preparing to take off from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Jackson, Mississippi.

After tweeting about the incident, Adams added in a Facebook post that he was one of three medical professionals on board the flight who helped the patient. "Delta thanks the Surgeon General for volunteering his services in assisting this customer".
