Young, Seemingly Fit Pennsylvania Man Dies of Flu Complications

Kyler Baughman 21 of Latrobe Pa. was a fit 21-year-old until he was struck with the flu and ignored the symptoms for days- a fatal mistake his parents are now warning others about

The official source of departure was organ failure as a result of septic shock from the flu, Kyler's family said. Baughman's fiancée told WPXI he was coughing and complaining of mild chest pain. However, Kyler was coughing worse and running a high fever after Christmas. "Getting vaccinated later, however, can still be beneficial and vaccination should continue to be offered throughout the flu season, even into January or later".

So how do you know it's time to seek medical attention?

"I think he thought, 'I just got the flu; I'll be all right, '" Baughman explained. He went to an emergency room near his home in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, and ended up being flown to UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh.

But NBC 10 notes that the very young, the old, and those with fragile immune systems are most at risk; indeed, of the 18 flu deaths reported thus far in Pennsylvania for this flu season, Baughman's is the only one in the 19-49 age group.

In fact, her health consulting firm tried to push work requirements under the Obama administration, but was denied. Many of these recipients are individuals who are employed but whose jobs do not provide health insurance.

Mother Beverly told WPXI that before his death Kyler was extremely fit and was going to school to become a personal trainer. This is the body's way of reacting to an infection that has gone untreated or that hasn't been stopped. "People can actually die from the flu".

SEPSIS is a serious condition that is triggered by the body's extreme response to an infection, as opposed to a severe infection itself. His mother adds that Kyler probably ignored his flu thinking that it would just go away on its own.

Within 48 hours, his overall health began rapidly declining, in accordance with his loved ones.

"It doesn't seem real", his mother says.

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

During this extremely challenging time, Mr. and Mrs. Baughman have made a decision to share their story with the media in hopes of raising awareness.

The Centers for Disease Control estimated that from 2010-2011 to 2013-2014, there were 12,000 to a high of 56,000 deaths in the US that were associated to influenza. "I'll go rest a little bit, '" Beverly Baughman said of her son. "At whatever point you have a fever and you have it various days, don't release it. Get it dealt with".
