H1N1 ruled out in death of Miami U. graduate

A 2004 Elmwood High School graduate who died earlier this week did not have swine flu as her family had been told, according to Ohio Department of Health test results released Friday.

Kimberly “Kimi” Dora Young of Oxford, Ohio, a Miami University graduate who would have turned 23 Sunday, died at University Hospital in Cincinnati on Wednesday from complications of viral pneumonia, according to the family.

After initially being hospitalized last week in the Oxford area, the daughter of Bryan and Cathy Young of Wayne tested positive for H1N1, the family was told.

But tests on a Butler County woman in her 20s who died this week were not positive for H1N1, according to the Ohio Department of Health, which could not identify the woman for privacy reasons.

Ms. Young's funeral is at 11 a.m. Saturday at Mount Zion United Brethren Church, 7481 Bays Rd., in Wood County's Portage Township.
