8-year-old Queens girl died of flu

Health officials have confirmed that two children have died from the flu this season in New York City.

She died at 6:38 a.m. a short time after EMS rushed her there from her family's home in LeFrak City.

Her frantic father performed CPR. But when the child arrived at the hospital, she was pronounced dead.

An eight-year-old girl who was having trouble breathing died Monday morning at Elmhurst Hospital.

That's the message New Yorkers need to know from the New York City Emergency Management Department's latest podcast series.

When the winning numbers were first announced, she didn't believe she had won. "When they came in, he said: 'Don't do it, bro". She thought she was required to do so as directed by information on the state lottery commission's website.

This year's season is the worst since the swine flu pandemic in 2009, according to state health officials.

Over 2,000 New Yorkers died from the flu and pneumonia, a common flu-related complication, in 2015, the past year with records available, according to a release from the New York City Health Department.

Exacerbating the problem, the flu vaccine developed for this year is effective in just 10 percent to 20 percent of the cases recorded.

There are still weeks left in this flu this season, officials said.

"The tragic death of a child due to the flu is a reminder of the devastating effects this illness can have on people of all ages".

The media ensures that they have information on the story, but preferred to keep it secret so as not to ruin the surprises. The game has become a phenomenon in the gaming community and has close to 3 million concurrent players on a good day.

Her's is the second pediatric, flu-related death of the season, the city said Monday.

"If you are sick with the flu, avoid contact with others and stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone", Health Commissioner Dr. Mary T. Bassett said.

Neighbors were shocked - and also anxious about the flu spreading.

Getting the flu shot reduces the odds you'll get the flu, and typically makes the symptoms milder if you come down with it anyway.
