At Least 5 Dead in Texas from Swine Flu

CBS NEWS: One of the biggest health concerns each winter is flu season. And the Centers for Disease Control says the flu is widespread in four southern states: Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. In some cases, it has turned deadly. Dustin Wright, 30, of Euless, Texas, came down with the flu the week before Thanksgiving. His wife Ashley Wright recalled, “He was achy, feverish, and chilled, nothing really more than that.” Ashley Wright says a few days later, the husband and father was struggling to breathe, so she rushed him to the emergency room. Doctors told her he had the H1N1 strain — swine flu. On December 5, he died.
