Brooklyn teen hospitalized with Ebola-like symptoms

A teen who had recently returned home to Brooklyn following a trip to Sudan was rushed to the hospital with Ebola-like symptoms on Friday night, authorities said.

The 14-year old boy fell unconscious with a fiery fever in the Bergen Beach apartment he shared with his family around 6:30 p.m. after a two-week trip to the Sudan in North Africa, officials said.

The teen was rushed to nearby Brookdale Hospital just before 7:30 p.m., when he was isolated and quarantined by hospital staff as doctors began tests to determine whether the teen has Ebola or not.

Sources told The Post the boy may have lied on a sheet all travelers are required to fill out following trips to infected regions.

The teen had not officially been diagnosed with Ebola as of Saturday morning.

The news comes on the heels of the death of Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who died from the virus days after returning to the US from Africa.
