Luck of the draw.
When Delta cabin crew on a flight from Atlanta to Jackson, Miss., asked whether a doctor was on board, they probably weren’t expecting to get help from “America’s Doctor.”
But Surgeon General Jerome Adams, who was aboard the flight, eagerly answered the call on Wednesday.
“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,” he said, posting a selfie on Twitter. “Patient doing well and like a good USPHS officer, I was glad to be able to assist!”
