Officials: Another Michigan child dies of swine flu

KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Kalamazoo County health officials say a boy has died from the swine flu.

The death is the state's second reported child death from H1N1 complications since Sept. 1. Michigan officials on Thursday said 22 people, including a 6-month-old child, had died from swine flu in that period.

At the time, the state said there were no other child deaths reported.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports 10-year-old Kamren David Blakely of Kalamazoo died Wednesday, less than two weeks after falling ill. His mother, Donna Blakely, said Kamren had bipolar disorder but no other health problems.

Blakely said the course of her son's illness “was very, very quick.”
