BOONE, N.C. (AP) -- A second American aid worker has tested positive for the Ebola virus at the same hospital in Liberia where an American doctor became infected while helping to combat an outbreak of the deadly disease, a relief group official said Sunday.

Ken Isaacs, a vice president of Samaritan's Purse, told The Associated Press that Dr. Kent Brantly -- the 33-year-old medical director for the group's Ebola care center on the outskirts of the Liberian capital of Monrovia -- was stable and in very serious condition.
