While traveling this past week, Dr. Oz was involved in a mid-flight emergency. The television doctor was flying to Mexico when someone on the flight called out for medical assistance. As he tends to do, Dr. Oz leaps into action and helps save the day.

Here is what happened to Dr. Oz this past week and how he saved someone else’s life.

Dr. Oz Saves Man’s Life During Mid-Flight Emergency

Mehmet Oz, 64, was on a Friday flight from New York City to Cabo San Lucas when someone called out for help with a medical emergency. The television personality jumped into action when he heard the call for help. It turned out that someone was going in and out of consciousness an hour into the flight.

Dr. Oz confirmed what happened and said he was flying to a wedding in Cabo San Lucas when the incident occurred (via TMZ). According to Oz, a “middle-aged healthy man lost consciousness.” He said he did the “usual triage with a physical exam and vital signs.” All it took was oxygen, orange juice, and time to get things back to normal.

Oz said that the man recovered and would need to see a local physician for a detailed evaluation. It appears that the man needed the juice to help combat low blood sugar levels, which often cause fainting. He also said, “Oxygen is the best drug we ever use.”

The TV doctor said the man is doing much better now. Eyewitnesses told TMZ that he gave the man his phone number in case something else happened when they landed. It sounds like he went above and beyond in helping a total stranger aboard the plane.

This Isn’t The First Time Dr. Oz Rushed To Help Someone

Dr. Oz has rushed to assist someone else in the past, and it has also happened at an airport. In 2021, he saved a man’s life at the Newark airport.

A man collapsed at Newark Liberty International Airport on March 1, 2021. Dr. Oz had just arrived at the airport on a flight from Florida. He was with his family when he witnessed the man collapse in the baggage claim area. The man was foaming at the mouth and bleeding from where his head hit the floor (via ABC News).

“I couldn’t get a pulse, which is the first thing you check for. He wasn’t responsive,” Oz said. “I had to roll him onto his back and recognized that he was purple, I mean the color of an eggplant, and that’s a bad combination.” He realized the man was dying and started doing CPR. In minutes, officers arrived on the scene with oxygen and a defibrillator.

Oz helped save that man’s life and said he kept in contact with him while he recovered at the hospital.

Are you surprised to hear that Dr. Oz has saved multiple people’s lives now by being at an airport or on a plane when the incidents happened? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
