Father Rick Wilson said his sons Benjamin and Jacob Wilson have been stuck in Wuhan since the outbreak, along with his granddaughter Jasmine.

On Monday morning, News Channel Five learned that Jacob was able to make it back to the U.S. three days ago. He was flown into a facility in San Diego.

Benjamin and Jasmine remain stuck in China.

Rick said Jacob is in a facility with over 200 other people from Wuhan with little to no masks and medical care. He said everyone there is being quarantined for a total of 24 days.

Rick has also sent a shipment of masks to Benjamin because they're running out over in Wuhan.

There's no word on when Benjamin and Jasmine will be able to make it back to the United States.
