ATLANTA - A doctor infected with Ebola in Africa has arrived in Atlanta for treatment.

Dobbins Air Reserve Base spokesman Lt. Col. James Wilson says a plane carrying the patient landed Saturday morning at the base. An ambulance from Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital left the base shortly afterward.

Samaritan's Purse missionary group tells The Associated Press that Dr. Kent Brantly is the patient. Though the ambulance was from Grady, Brantly and another aid worker will be treated at a special isolation unit at Emory University Hospital.

Later, one person in protective clothing climbed down from the back of the ambulance and a second person in protective clothing appeared to take his gloved hands and guide him toward a building at Emory.

The ambulance was flanked by a few SUVs and police car en route to the hospital.
