The condition of the passenger was not immediately clear, though Adams tweeted "patient doing well".

It was a great example of being at the right place at the right time, when the US Surgeon General travelling in a flight got to assist a passenger who was in of medical help.

The U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Jerome Adams, jumped in Wednesday, when a passenger aboard a Delta flight lost consciousness.

Adams, who was appointed by President Donald Trump, reportedly was on a flight to Jackson, Mississippi, when flight attendants began asking passengers if their was a doctor on board.

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

Shortly after Dr. Adams posted the selfie, in which it appears he is still on board the plane, Delta replied - thanking him for volunteering, for his service, and for sharing the news.

Adams, who has served as surgeon general since September of past year, is an anesthesiologist, according to his official biography. "Medical assistance was provided by the U.S. Surgeon General who worked with our flight crew to aid the customer".

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant tweeted back at the surgeon general: "Nice job, Dr. Adams!"

Adams has since arrived in Jackson, Mississippi, the flight's destination, where he's speaking on a panel discussion on opioid abuse.
