He developed complications as his flu caused a septic shock, which in turn, led to organ failure.

Baughman's fiancée, Olivia Marcanio, told WPXI, "He kinda just laid down and went about his day and that was the day he was coughing and said his chest hurt".

Baughman had been running a fever on and off since he started having flu symptoms. "Getting vaccinated later, however, can still be beneficial and vaccination should continue to be offered throughout the flu season, even into January or later". People who suspect they have the flu should seek medical assistance within 48 hours of when they started feeling ill as the treatment is most effective within this timeframe. His family says that he did not get a flu shot. On December 27, he was rushed to a Westmoreland County emergency room; from there, he was airlifted to the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, where he died hours later from complications from the flu.

SEPSIS is a serious condition that is triggered by the body's extreme response to an infection, as opposed to a severe infection itself. The flu usually comes with body aches, a muscle and body aches, headaches, fatigue, and in some cases (but not all) a fever and chills, according to the CDC.

A BODYBUILDER has died just five days after contracting the flu after suffering septic shock.

Baughman was known to family and friends as a health buff, riding motorbikes and lifting weights.

Beverly said her son was in great shape.

"It's also important to be able to identify what the main flu symptoms are and how it is different from an actual cold".

He came down with the flu a couple days before Christmas, his mother, Beverly Baughman, told WPXI earlier this week.

Baughman's parents are hoping that their son's story will inspire others to be aware of how unsafe the flu can be.

"I just think he ignored it and thought, "oh, it will go away" like most people".

The Centers for Disease Control estimated that from 2010-2011 to 2013-2014, there were 12,000 to a high of 56,000 deaths in the USA that were associated to influenza.

Writing on Facebook, father Todd said: 'We are without words for the passing of our only son Kyler Baughman. "Whenever you have a fever for multiple days, don't let it go, get it taken care of".
