Year-old North Carolina girl dies days after flu diagnosis

In a parent's worst nightmare: a six-year-old girl died from the flu in North Carolina last week. This year's flu has been lethal partly due to the strain of virus, Reuters reported, which is linked to higher rates of death and severe illness. "It's frightful. I don't wish this on anybody".

The flu is now widespread throughout most of the country with the exception of Washington, D.C., and Hawaii, according to the Centers for Disease Control. "Please all of you who have children please hold them tight and first sign of flu get them to the er...", Rhonda Muth wrote on the GoFundMe.

"Cherish every single moment you have with your kids because it can be taken away in an instant", said Rhonda Muth.

After showing flu-like symptoms beginning last Tuesday, "the family took her to urgent care on Thursday and they called an ambulance a day later when the girl was having trouble breathing", according to a story on Patch. She was treated with Tamiflu to relieve her symptoms and told to stay hydrated, Fox News reported. "How could that even happen?" she asked.

"She was breathing somewhat heavier. I mean one day she's fine, you know, and I mean she had the fever and she was a little achy", Rhonda Muth, a family member, said. Her parents took her to urgent care on January 18 and she died the next day, according to a GoFundMe.

'Other than that, I mean, she had had the runny nose and cough...and then she's gone. A 10-year-old boy in New Canaan, Connecticut, whose mother said was healthy as 'an ox, ' died after he was rushed to a NY hospital.

Lynnette Brammer, head of the CDC's Domestic Flu Surveillance team, told WTVR: "Hopefully we're at the peak now, but until we see it go down for a couple of weeks we won't know that we have reached peak yet".

This has been a notoriously bad flu season.

Emily was not vaccinated, although her parents told ABC11 that they plan to vaccinate their two sons. Through tears, her mother said, "She was a good girl". And all of sudden she just raised up and went back down.
