The mother of an 11-year-old Hamburg, New York boy who recently died from flu-related complications doesn’t want her son to be remembered as “just a statistic” but rather as “the wonderful boy he was.”
Luca Calanni died Saturday at Oishei Children’s Hospital, his mother, Ashley Calanni, told local news station WTKR.
The article goes on to state the following:
Calanni said Luca was sickened with the flu early last week. By Wednesday, after not seeing any improvement, he was taken to the hospital for fluids. There, he was diagnosed with septic shock. His condition steadily deteriorated; he later suffered a fatal cardiac arrest, according to his mother.
The report states that Luca had just turned 11 in December. He leaves behind three sisters. His mother said he had been vaccinated against the flu virus.
Many in the community have lit up their homes and businesses in orange lights in honor of the boy. See more details and photos in the Twitter posts below.
It was later, the flu attacked his heart and the young boy went into cardiac arrest. https://t.co/g8xdIOisPT
