According to hospital spokeswoman Deborah Marshall, the Pennsylvania woman died Saturday at Bon Secours Community Hospital in Port Jervis.

New York laboratory tests confirmed Monday that she had swine flu.

Pennsylvania Department of Health spokeswoman Stacy Kriedeman says the woman was a Pike County resident. The woman is the third Pennsylvania resident to die from swine flu.

The woman's name wasn't being released.
