Viznitz Bachurim, who Continue to Feel Ill, Returned to the Hospital by BP Hatzolah
One day after all, except for one, of the more than 20 Viznitz bachurim who had been released from the hospital after suffering from food poisoning they probably contracted during a trip on which they visited kvrei tzaddikim in Ukraine and Poland, tonight, Boro Park Hatzolah returned the bachurim back to Maimonides Medical Center, where they were readmitted.
Not only did the boys continue to feel ill, but their bloodwork had been reported to reveal infections that must be treated.
The boys, most of whom were discharged from the hospital last night, were reportedly quite dehydrated and having difficulty keeping down food and drink.
According to reports, the bachurim could be continuing to suffer from the food poisoning they previously contracted abroad, or they could have contracted an undetermined virus while travelling with their rebbe to visit their roots.
In addition to visiting the birthplaces of the Vitzniz and Kosov Chassiduses, the bachurim and their rebbe spent last Shabbos by the kever of the holy Baal Shem Tov in Medzhybizh, Ukraine, with 300 other Chassidim.
Although the trip was uplifting and beautiful, the bachurim started to feel severely ill on the flight back to New York City.
Once back in town, the Boro Park Hatzolah met the boys’ bus at 14th Avenue and 37th Street to treat the bachurim, who felt quite ill, but who seemed stable.
