Kyler Baughman dies of flu five days after catching it.

Medics have concluded he died after his organ failed because of septic shock caused by influenza. "He kinda just laid down and went about his day", Baughman's fiancé, Olivia Marcanio, told WPXI, "That was the day he was coughing and said his chest hurt". He was running a fever on and off. 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.

According to his family, he had not had the influenza jab prior to getting sick.

He was taken to a Westmoreland County emergency room and then flown to UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh.

What is the H3N2 flu and how bad is flu season this year?

Kyler Baughman, who was studying to be a personal trainer, died due to complications from the flu.

In some cases, people are misunderstanding the common infection as flu, which is also becoming a reason for death.

"He was into physical wellness", Beverly Baughman told WXPI. According to family members, both of her children were sick in the week before and they may have infected their mother with the virus.

While it is not required, the CDC does suggest that everyone over the age of 6 months should get a flu vaccine every year.

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