King County has had its first swine flu death of this flu season.
Public Health of Seattle and King County said a man in his 20s died Wednesday from complications of H1N1 influenza and his underlying health conditions. That brings to four the number of deaths in the county blamed on swine flu. From April 25 through Oct. 2, 82 people in the county were hospitalized with swine flu, and three of those people died.
Public health spokesman Matias Valenzuela says that because of privacy rules, the agency is not releasing further information on the man, including what his other health conditions were.
