Symptoms Worsen for Swine Flu Family

By  | 

The symptoms of the H1N1 virus has sent an already ill 13-year-old to the hospital. 11 news first reported on the family with six of 10 children presumed to have H1N1 on Sunday.

Monday morning, the fragile boy got so ill that he was taken to the hospital for treatment. The family tells us the 13-year-old is on a ventilator.

Most of the cases being seen in southern Colorado have been mild, but as we've seen when symptoms get severe they can even become deadly. This is just another reminder to take the virus seriously.
