Based on what we know, this appears to be an aggressive flu strain, and we encourage everyone in our community to consider the flu shot if they haven’t already been immunized. It is not too late to vaccinate your family. Even if the flu vaccine doesn’t always completely prevent illness, it has been shown to minimize symptoms. We urge families to monitor children and elders closely, and seek medical attention if you become concerned. Samantha Baynes said she took her son to an emergency room in Gretna, where he was diagnosed with strep throat and the flu.
Doctors sent him home with medication to treat his strep throat, Samantha Baynes said.
“We tried to give him the medication and everything we were supposed to do and he just wasn’t getting any better,” explained Samantha Baynes.
Sunday morning around 8:00, Kevin Baynes’ older sister went in to check on him and found him unresponsive. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
“Watch your children closely,” Samantha Baynes said. “Don’t hesitate to go to the emergency room. No matter what time it is day or night, just take them.”
