US surgeon general gives aid on plane

The United States Surgeon General said on Wednesday that he assisted in a medical emergency on board a Delta flight

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant praised the anesthesiologist and former IN health commissioner.

Dr. Jerome Adams was aboard flight 1827 from Ft.

Adams and two nurses responded, said Kate Migliaccio-Grabill, a Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman.

U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams was on a flight to Jackson, Mississippi when he helped another passenger who was having a medical emergency.

It was not immediately clear what situation Adams was referring to and what happened on the flight. He said the person is now doing well.

A Delta flight was getting ready to take off from the runway when passengers were made aware of a medical emergency. "Why yes - yes there was".
