NEW YORK CITY (WABC) – A 14-year-old boy from New York shares his story after overcoming the mysterious COVID-19 inflammatory syndrome that affects children. Dariana Dyson was a happy, healthy 15-year-old girl. Then suddenly she was gone.

Jack Ramos, 14, of Manhattan, also had the syndrome.

Ramos was placed in intensive care at the New York Presbyterian Hospital. He saw the heartbreaking fear in his father’s eyes.

He says it was the first time he saw his father become moved.

It was like that for two full days and just as the doctors were preparing to intubate Ramos, he stabilized and improved.

Ramos says he is happy to be home and alive.

It depends in part on what they learn about COVID-19 syndrome that attacks children like Jack Ramos.
