United States Surgeon General Jerome Adams reportedly assisted flight attendants in a medical emergency on board a Delta flight Tuesday.

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

It is not clear at this time what the medical emergency was, but Delta released a statement which said Adams helped when hearing a passenger needed medical attention.

“Prior to takeoff, Delta flight 1827 from Fort Lauderdale to Atlanta returned to the gate following a customer illness. Medical assistance was provided by the U.S. Surgeon General who worked with our flight crew to aid the customer,” Delta said in a statement. “Delta thanks the Surgeon General for volunteering his services in assisting this customer.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to the Surgeon General’s office but did not receive a response in time for publication.
