Fox local has the video and the 911 call-
Prosecutors said an East Columbus woman could face charges after firefighters said she called 911 claiming her sister had Ebola.
The woman told a dispatcher her sister had a fever of 107. Three times she said her sister recently traveled to West Africa.
Haz mat crews were dispatched to the home on South Champion Avenue on the east side to treat the woman.
Firefighters said the sick woman has never left the country and the caller later admitted to making up the Ebola hoax so she could get quicker treatment.
“Don’t do it,” said Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien. “One method you send that message is, those people that choose to (lie about Ebola), the very first ones that try it are going to end up in jail.”
Columbus Police said they are considering filing charges against the caller. O’Brien said disorderly conduct or inducing panic charges could be filed against anyone lying about Ebola.
“It’s a serious problem,” he said. “It shouldn’t be complicated by false claims that it exists.”
