DALLAS - A Dallas nurse diagnosed with Ebola is being transferred to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.

An ambulance with a crew clad in hazardous-material suits arrived at the hospital Wednesday afternoon and left for Dallas Love Field. There, aerial video showed the crew leading a person in a yellow hazmat suit and booties onto a jet.

A statement from the Atlanta hospital Wednesday said Amber Joy Vinson was being transferred to Emory from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.

However, a spokeswoman for the Dallas hospital declined to confirm that Vinson had been removed from the facility.

Vinson was one of the nurses who cared for Thomas Eric Duncan, who died at the Dallas hospital last week of the Ebola virus. Another nurse is in good condition receiving treatment for Ebola.
