The flight was delayed for more than three hours and forced to return to the gate due to a "customer illness", the airline said in a statement. He said the person is now doing well.

It was not immediately clear what situation Adams was referring to and what happened on the flight.

Adams was on a flight from Fort Lauderdale to Jackson, Mississippi, when the flight attendant asked if there was a doctor on board. Although Adams was successful in regaining the consciousness of the passenger, he thought that it would be necessary to take the passenger back to the gate and get the patient evaluated at the hospital.

"Hello, Wow! We certainly thank you for volunteering as well as your service. 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.

The panel will be moderated by Dr. Claude Brunson, UMMC senior adviser to the vice chancellor for external affairs and fellow anesthesiologist, who extended the invitation to Adams.
