ATLANTA — American Ebola patient Dr. Kent Brantly has arrived safely at Emory University Hospital. NewsChopper2 was over the hospital as Brantly walked out of the back of the ambulance and into the hospital. Brantly was taken to the hospital by ambulance from Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Cobb County.
"It was a relief to welcome Kent home today. I spoke with him, and he is glad to be back in the US," said Brantly's wife Amber in a statement Saturday. "I am thankful to God for his safe transport and for giving him the strength to walk into the hospital. Please continue praying for Kent and Nancy--and please continue praying for the people of Liberia and those who continue to serve them there."
The plane carrying Brantly touched down just after 11 a.m. Saturday. The plane flew Brantly from Liberia to Atlanta. Officials said Brantly and American aide worker Nancy Writebol contracted the disease in the West African nation while working with the faith-based charity Samaritan’s Purse.
