One Pennsylvania teen, who is originally from Guinea, recently had to endure his high school rival's soccer team chanting “Ebola” at him during a match, WPVI reports. According to the station, Ibrahim Toumkara, a Nazareth Area High School student and soccer player, got into a fight last week after he heard players from rival Northampton High School taunting him about the deadly virus, which has killed more than 4,000 people across West Africa, including in his home country.

"Being from western Africa and having family in that area, he didn't take too kindly to those remarks and went after one of the players on the Northampton team," the boy's coach, Edward Bachert, explained. Bachert is also Ibrahim's legal guardian, as well as a police chief for Lehigh County.
