Dr. Oz Jumps Into Action To Save Stranger

It was excitement in the skies on Wednesday night when Dr. Mehmet Oz was called to rescue a passenger on his flight who collapsed. For those who don't know, Dr. Oz is actually a cardiothoracic surgeon - and happened to be was on the flight from New York to Las Vegas. And when a 30-year-old man collapsed during the flight, Dr. Oz leapt into action.

Here's where it gets cooler - he MacGuyered an  EKG test by using the electrode pads from the plane's Automated External Defibrillator (AED). The unnamed passenger was taken to the local emergency room upon landing - and as it happens, the man had the flu and a high fever, which is what caused him to collapse.

And by the way? This isn't the first time Dr. Oz has tried to save a stranger. In 2013, he helped save a woman, who was struck by a taxi in New York City.
