Nation's surgeon general helps rescue sick passenger at Fort Lauderdale airport

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

A Delta flight crew waiting to take off Wednesday was hoping to have a doctor on board who could help with a medical emergency. He had also worked to tamp down panic in the United States over the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, Bernstein reported. He said the person is now doing well.

It is not clear at this time what the medical emergency was, but Delta released a statement which said Adams helped when hearing a passenger needed medical attention.

According to local news affiliate WAPT, Adams is heading to Mississippi to speak at the University of Mississippi Medical Center on Thursday, where he will address the Trump administration's policies dedicated to fighting the opioid crisis.

"Hello, Wow! We certainly thank you for volunteering as well as your service".

"Thanks for your service and assistance", Delta told Adams in a tweet.

"The truth is, there are doctors, nurses and techs who step up each and every day to respond to emergencies on flights, and they ALL should be recognized and thanked", Adams wrote.

By training, Adams is an anaesthesiologist and was earlier a health commissioner in IN, before becoming the US Surgeon General.
