HEALTH BOSS TO RES­CUE

Herald Sun - - NEWS -

THE US sur­geon gen­eral helped treat a pas­sen­ger who fell ill on his flight this week.

Jerome Adams, an anaes­the­si­ol­o­gist, said the call went out for help on the Delta Air Lines jet as it pre­pared to fly to Jack­son, Mis­sis­sippi.

Dr Adams tweeted that a doc­tor had been asked for.

The pas­sen­ger lost con­scious­ness when the plane was on the ground in Fort Laud­erdale, Florida, and Dr Adams and two nurses re­sponded.

Dr Adams said the pa­tient had been taken to hos­pi­tal and was do­ing well.
