From the Daily News:
The 16-month-old infant perished within an hour after his parents brought him to Elmhurst Hospital Center at 9:30 p.m., a spokesman said.
City and hospital officials said it was too soon to tell for sure if the baby succumbed to the H1N1 swine flu virus spreading sickness and death around the world.
"It will take days before the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention can confirm or deny that," said hospital spokesman Dario Centorcelli.
The unidentified infant's parents noticed he had a high fever when they put him to bed Monday night. They brought him to the hospital after he started turning blue, Centorcelli said.
The baby was pronounced dead at 10:20 p.m.
His 3-year-old brother and 1-year-old cousin were also being treated for flulike symptoms at the hospital.
The spokesman estimated there were about 200 people in the Elmhurst emergency room with flulike symptoms.
