So, if you're sick and you want to get an ambulance to your house VERY quickly to help you out, maybe give this a shot: Tell the 911 dispatcher that you have Ebola.

That'll get 'em there fast!

A woman in Columbus, Ohio, did just that last week and, well, it worked.

She called 911 because her sister was sick. She claimed her sister had a 107-degree Fahrenheit fever and had visited Africa on Friday, WXIX-TV and 610 WVTN reported.

That caused the 911 dispatcher to send out a hazardous materials (haz-mat) team to the home and tape off the scene.

A few hours later, they found out it was a hoax and that the woman did not have Ebola and had not visited Africa. Shocking.
