WELLINGTON, Fla. – A 22-year-old is in a coma at a local hospital with swine flu and her prematurely born baby is dead.
Claudia Hernandez was eight months pregnant and diagnosed with swine flu last week. She was admitted to a Palm Beach County hospital last Wednesday and that's when doctors delivered the infant prematurely.
The baby lived five days. Hernandez doesn't know her baby died because she is in a coma; family members said doctors have told them that the woman's life is also in danger.
