San Diego Woman Died After Contracting Swine Flu

Health officials in San Diego say a 50-year-old woman who died last month was suffering from swine flu.

County Health and Human Services Agency spokesman Jose Alvarez says the woman had an underlying medical condition and the flu created extra medical stress on her body.

She died June 29.

The woman, whose name was not released, is the fourth person in San Diego County whose death has been tied to swine flu.
