A Louisiana congressman put on his doctor hat Monday during a flight in which another passenger lost consciousness.
Rep. Bill Cassidy and another doctor on board the Southwest Airlines flight from New Orleans to Baltimore attended to the man, who was having trouble breathing and suffering from low blood pressure. The doctors laid down the man and were able to bring him back to consciousness.
The man was transported to a Baltimore hospital after the plane landed. His condition is unknown.
Cassidy, who is a doctor by trade, is running against Mary Landrieu in November's senate election.
