Adams said he alerted the attendants that he was indeed a doctor and assisted in the medical emergency.

The call for help was quickly answered by U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, who was another passenger on the flight.

Thursday, Adams said he had the "good fortune" of being part of a team of individuals that responded on the flight, including two nurses.

The passenger had lost consciousness before the plane took off. Adams and the nurses helped the passenger until an ambulance arrived. The flight was delayed for more than three hours and forced to return to the gate due to a "customer illness", the airline said in a statement.

Medical assistance was provided by the U.S. Surgeon General who worked with our flight crew to aid the customer", Delta confirmed in a statement. Dr. Adams, who started as surgeon general in September 2017, is an anesthesiologist, according to his official biography.
