DALLAS -- For first time, family of Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S., spoke candidly about  his treatment while at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

Family and friends gathered outside the hospital, holding signs, desperate for answers as to why Duncan died from the virus.

"His son did not get to see him, why? He asked to see his son, but they refused, why?" one woman in attendance implored.

This marked the first public statement made by friends and family since Duncan's diagnosis.

The group held what they called a silent protest; they expressed their concerns and frustrations with how the hospital handled, or in their opinion, mishandled, Duncan's case.

"There was no respect for him," another woman added.
