    12-Year-Old Boy Dies One Day After Flu Screening Turned Up Negative Despite Showing Symptoms

    JASON DUAINE HAHN January 20, 2018 07:57 AM
    A mother from Michigan is warning parents about influenza after her sixth-grader—who received the flu vaccination in December—seemed to suddenly show symptoms of the virus in early January, and tragically passed away soon after.

    After 12-year-old Michael Messenger vomited while eating dinner with his family on Jan. 9, his mother, Jessica Decent-Doll, took him to an urgent care center near their home when he still felt ill the next evening. Physicians screened Michael for the flu, and a rapid test for the virus came up negative. With his vitals coming back normal, doctors gave Michael fluids and prescribed anti-nausea medication to ease his vomiting.

      Tim Schell was healthy, then he got the flu. White Lake man's death serves as a warning

      Last month, Tim Schell and his wife Dana flew to Colorado for a ski trip.

      The White Lake residents hit the slopes, but after one run, Schell began to feel ill. They returned to their hotel. Two days later, on Jan. 31, Schell, 51, was dead. The cause? According to his family, it was Influenza A — the most harmful strain of the virus.


      "Before the trip, Tim felt fine and was healthy," said Schell's niece, Paige Bastas...

      Grappling with an unexpected and traumatic loss, Schell's family is sharing their loved one's story hoping to raise awareness about the realities of the seemingly common seasonal virus. .
