    The death was officially confirmed on Wednesday, though it happened late last week, said Salt Lake County Health Department spokesman Nicholas Rupp. He said the individual was an adult, but younger than 65 and died with other health issues, including influenza.

          PARK CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) - 8 Year Old Mackenzie Coyne of Park City died Sunday shortly after testing positive for influenza A. Her family said it progressed quickly over the weekend, even though she had a flu shot. Now the community is coming together for her family to help.

          She celebrated her birthday last Friday when she told her dad she was a little under the weather. On Saturday her family urged her to rest and she did get sick once. They assumed she was sick like most kids get. By Sunday they noticed something was wrong and took her to the urgent care where she tested positive for influenza A.

              Several young girls have died this year in areas that have problems with wood smoke pollution. Even a great vaccine can't totally overcome immune-suppressing pollution.

              Family friend Carrie Prater said that an ambulance rushed her to the hospital 20 minutes later, but things deteriorated fast. Shortly after arriving she was gone even though doctors tried to revive her....

                      Spike in flu cases arrives later than usual

                      SALT LAKE CITY Influenza activity is continuing to increase in Utah, though the illness is peaking much later than it has in previous years.

                      While deaths related to influenza are not tracked in the state of Utah, at least four have been made public, in Salt Lake, Duchesne and Millard counties. Others remain unconfirmed, but influenza does have a hand in an increased number of hospitalizations, which are being reported throughout the state.
