McALLEN, TEXAS (AP) - State health officials Tuesday confirmed the first death of a Texan due to swine flu -- and it's also the nation's second swine flu death.
Authorities say the woman -- who was in her 30's -- lived in Cameron County, along the border with Mexico, and had other, chronic health conditions. Details on those conditions weren't immediately released.
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.
