News Footage Shows Kent Brantly Being Helped Out of an Ambulance

Doctor Kent Brantly has arrived back in the US for treatment as he battles Ebola.  Dr. Brantly refused a serum while in West Africa so that it could be given to a fellow aid worker, and as his condition worsened, he was rushed back to the US for treatment.  He landed at an air base near Marietta, Georgia, in a jet outfitted with a portable tent specifically for patients with highly contagious diseases.

Dr. Brantly was then transported 15 miles to Emory University Hospital.  Footage shows him walking from the ambulance to the hospital, wearing a hazmat suit.  While he walks shakily, the fact that he was walking at all is encouraging, and his condition has been listed as stable.  His fellow aid worker, Nancy Writebol, will arrive in two days.
