Swine flu link probed in Ark. man's death

Associated Press - May 17, 2009 6:44 PM ET

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Pulaski County's coroner says investigators are probing whether a 28-year-old offshore oil worker's death may have been caused by the swine flu.

Coroner Garland Camper tells The Associated Press that the man died Saturday morning at a Little Rock hospital after suffering from flulike symptoms for six weeks. Camper says samples taken from the man tested positive for several strains of flu, requiring his office to explore the possibility swine flu played a part in the death.

Dr. James Phillips, the state's epidemiologist, says the man's case would be incredibly unusual for the swine flu. However, Phillips says the samples will be sent along to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta for testing.

Camper declined to identify the man. The man's body will undergo an autopsy on Monday.

Arkansas has had six confirmed cases of swine flu since the outbreak began.
