Ad Feedback

NEW YORK - A woman in her 50s is New York City's second confirmed death linked to swine flu.

A spokeswoman for the city's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene says the woman died over the weekend and had underlying health conditions.

Assistant public school principal Mitchell Wiener became the city's first death from the virus a week ago.

The city's first outbreak of swine flu occurred about a month ago, when more than 1,000 teenagers at a Catholic high school in Queens began falling ill following the return of several students from vacations in Mexico, the epicenter of the outbreak.
