  • H1N1 claims life of Williams Lake man

    A 37-year-old man from Williams Lake died of H1N1 in St. Paul?s Hospital in Vancouver on Jan. 21.

    His widow Harjit Shergill, 36, said she doesn?t want to create panic, however, she does want people to be able to make an informed decision about whether or not to get the flu shot.

    Her husband, Barinder Mahil, did get pneumonia quite often, she said, and while the family got flu shots now and then, they did not get one this year.

    ?We didn?t know that if a person has pneumonia or underlying conditions they should get the flu shot,? Shergill said Thursday.

    ?Maybe it would have helped. We?ll never know.?
