Michael Jackson's former physician Dr. Conrad Murray rushed to the aid of a fellow passenger on a flight from San Francisco to Minneapolis on Sunday, according to entertainment website RadarOnline.
The doctor, who is facing manslaughter charges over the death of Jackson, gave medical attention to a passenger who felt dizzy on the Delta Air Lines flight.
Murray's California medical license, issued in 1991, was suspended by a Los Angeles County judge in January until the end of his criminal case, the Los Angeles Times reported.
However, Murray was quick to respond when the captain asked over the address system if there was a doctor or nurse available as the flight was half-way to Minneapolis, according to an unnamed witness.
"Dr. Murray assisted a man who appeared to be in his 40's, who was dizzy, clammy, and a little disoriented," the witness said.
Once the plane landed the patient was met by paramedics, and after he was checked out it was decided he did not require further medical attention.
It was not the first time Murray has provided medical attention to a passenger on a flight. He treated a woman that had fainted on a US Airways flight last May.
Murray, 57, is accused of administering a deadly amount of the anesthetic Propofol that killed Jackson in June 2009 at age 50.
He has pleaded not guilty, with his defense team claiming the troubled star injected himself with the lethal dose of the powerful anesthetic.
