The ambulance carrying Dr. Kent Brantly, one of two Americans infected with the deadly Ebola virus, arrives at Emory University Hospital.

Aerial video shows two people in protective suits getting out of the ambulance.

They can be seen walking slowing into the Atlanta hospital, one of only four institutions in the U.S. equipped to handle such cases.

Brantly was flown in from Liberia in a special medical plane that landed at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Georgia.

The plane, equipped to handle patients with Ebola, will return to Liberia to pick up Nancy Writebol, the other infected American.

Brantly and Writebol were working in Liberia to help combat West Africa's worst Ebola outbreak on record when they contracted the deadly disease.
