Dr. Tamika Cross posted this over the weekend, detailing her experience on a Delta flight.
As the story broke, Dr. Cross garnered support on Twitter.
According to Dr. Cross, a flight attendant wanted to see her "credentials" before the attendant would let her up to help.
Cross is listed as a fourth-year resident in the Department of of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Services at Lyndon Baines Johnson General Hospital.
Several other young, black, female doctors tweeted in support.
Some people are very unhappy about the situation.
Five days after Dr. Cross posted her story online, Delta responded.
Flight attendants are trained to collect information from medical volunteers offering to assist with an onboard medical emergency.
Delta said that parts of the investigation couldn't be disclosed, because they involve personnel matters -- but that flight attendants are trained to get some kind of ID from medical volunteers.
