On Thursday evening, Erin Burnett welcomed CNN's David McKenzie, the only television reporter covering the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone.
Joining the host and viewers from West Africa, McKenzie began with a summation of the situation, in which doctors have died:
"It's just tragic that those trying to save lives, have lost their lives," he said.
As his report progressed, McKenzie shared the story of C. Ray Khan, the brother of Dr. Sheik Omar Khan, a healthcare worker who died while treating the Ebola virus.
Asked if he had anything he'd like to tell his late broter, Khan looked skyward and said "you didn't die in vain ... you died for humanity, for this country."
