That moment when there’s an emergency at 38,000 feet and you find yourself asking, “Is there a doctor on board?,” actually happened in real-life and thankfully there was!

Dr. Jennifer Ashton of the daytime series The Doctors was on a cross-country Delta flight from Los Angeles last week when a woman had lost consciousness. Without delay, Dr. Ashton rushed to help the Spanish-speaking passenger, and she helped the woman right until paramedics reached her upon landing at JFK airport in New York City.

Best of all: the patient survived and Delta gave Dr. Ashton 15,000 miles for her good deed! Talk about pay it forward!
