State officials confirm first Texan death from swine flu

McALLEN, Texas (AP) - State health officials today confirmed the first death of a Texas resident due to swine flu.

Few details have been released but officials say the woman lived in Cameron County, along the U.S.-Mexico border, and had other, chronic health conditions.

The Texas Department of State Health Services says the woman died earlier this week.

Last week, a toddler boy from Mexico City died at a Houston hospital -- making him the first swine flu death in the U.S.
