  • Grade 12 student in Winnipeg dies from flu complications

    A Winnipeg high school student has died from the flu.

    Blaine Ruppenthal, a Grade 12 student from Kelvin High School, died Monday after suffering medical complications related to Type A influenza, according to his family.
    The 17-year-old suffered cardiac arrest twice on Jan. 7 and was rushed to St. Boniface, where he was put into an induced coma and received hypothermic therapy, says a Facebook post from his cousin Mary-Anne Clarke.

    "Doctors have concluded this was caused by the Type A influenza," Clark wrote.

    "He was a beautiful, smart, kind boy," she added in a message to CBC News.
