    The H1N1 virus has claimed the life of a Roscommon County man, state health officials said today.

    A Michigan Department of Community Health spokesman said it was the state's second death related to the virus, formerly referred to as swine flu.

    The man, 58, died June 4. Lab results of an H1N1 infection were confirmed late Wednesday, health officials said in a statement.

    The man, who was not named or further identified, also had other underlying health conditions, according to the spokesman.

    Another death from H1N1 was reported earlier in Macomb County.
