Year-old NC girl dies just days after flu diagnosis

6-year-old North Carolina girl dies three days after flu diagnosis

The little girl was diagnosed with the flu last Tuesday, Jan. 16. Paramedics showed up quickly and took over CPR, but by the time they got to WakeMed it was too late. "It's terrible. I don't wish this on anybody", she said. "How could that even happen?" she asked.

'Other than that, I mean, she had had the runny nose and cough...and then she's gone.

"She started to get symptoms on Tuesday", according to a GoFundMe page set up for her family.

Her heartbroken parents are now warning others to take flu seriously after they were sent home with Emily and told to "keep her hydrated".

At least 30 children have been killed by the flu this season, federal health officials said.

Muth did not receive her flu vaccination this year, and her mother and father are now urging other parents to vaccinate their children.

But the next day she stopped breathing, with paramedics unable to save Emily's life. Her parents took her to urgent care on January 18 and she died the next day, according to a GoFundMe. 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.

The fever appeared to normalize Thursday, but on Friday, Emily began having difficulty breathing.

The current flu season is, so far, on track to be deadlier for children than the previous two. She says the paramedic told her the labored breathing was a typical symptom of the flu and that he thought her daughter would be OK. 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.

"The main culprit for this harsh flu season is the predominant strain, H3N2, which causes the worst outbreaks of the two influenza A viruses and two types of influenza B viruses circulating". The CDC recommends that everyone over the age of 6 months get a flu shot. Muth hopes Emily's story will encourage parents to vaccinate their children.

"Just take it day by day", she said.
