When the call went out for a doctor on board, the U.S. Surgeon General says he gladly stepped in to help with a medical emergency on a commercial flight.

Dr. Jerome Adams was aboard flight 1827 from Ft.

"On my Delta flight to Jackson Mississippi (by way of Atlanta), and they asked if there was a Doctor on board to help with a medical emergency -why yes-yes there was", Adams tweeted along with a photo showing the smiling Surgeon General on the flight.

Last Wednesday, passengers on a Delta flight were waiting for the plane to take off at the Lauerdale-Hollywood International Airport when flight crew alerted of a medical emergency.

As surgeon general, he oversees the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, a group of more than 6,700 uniformed officer public health professionals.
