US : Arizona boy dies of complications from the flu

Via Chron, excerpt :

" An Arizona boy has died of complications from the flu, but health officials said Wednesday that it's not a sign of an early or particularly severe season.

The elementary school-aged boy living in Maricopa County died sometime during the summer, but the county's Department of Public Health declined to release more details to protect his family's privacy.

Flu deaths typically occur later in the year and in people over the age of 65, said Rebecca Suneshine, a public health physician for the department."
