Bodybuilder, 21, dies from FLU just five days after catching virus that shut down his major organs

Up to 650 000 people die of respiratory diseases linked to seasonal flu each year

Even a 21-year-old Realtor's household says they had been shocked when the nutritious, youthful guy died on days of being identified as having the flu.

"The immediate cause of death was multi-organ failure due to septic shock due to influenza", the spokesperson continued.

He was taken to a Westmoreland County emergency room and then flown to UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh.

This is shaping up as the worst flu season in a good while, with California particularly affected, but other regions nationwide have registered severe flu cases as well. People who suspect they have the flu should seek medical assistance within 48 hours of when they started feeling ill as the treatment is most effective within this timeframe.

According to his mother, he celebrated with more family members on Christmas night and returned to his job on December 26. States aren't required to report the cases or deaths of those over the age of 18, additionally, when someone dies of complications from the flu, it frequently goes unlisted on the death certificate. According to family members, both of her children were sick in the week before and they may have infected their mother with the virus. "And I think people need to pay more attention to their bodies", Beverly Baughman said.

"He was into physical fitness", said his mother, Beverly Baughman. It is unknown if having the flu shot would have prevented Baughman from getting sick (sometimes the flu shot is for a different strain and doesn't protect against the sickness), but it's a possibility.

While unexpected, Baughman's story is like that of many others who succumb to the flu, or complications the potentially deadly virus can cause. "I'll go rest a little bit, '" added Baughman's mom.

"That death was only reported to us". Baughman's condition grew worse the next day and he began running a fever on and off.
