U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams was on the right plane at the right time.

When the flight staff of Delta flight 1827 needed a doctor, they got one: The "nation's doctor".

Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman, Kate Migliaccio-Grabill said, Adams and two nurses responded after a person lost consciousness when the plane was on the ground in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Adams said he alerted the attendants that he was indeed a doctor and assisted in the medical emergency. "Delta thanks the Surgeon General for volunteering his services in assisting this customer".
