Flu Childrens Deaths_Hass.jpg

Max Schwolert, a 6-foot-4, 17-year-old Texas high school senior, grew sick in Wisconsin while visiting his grandparents for the holidays. Max felt fluish on Christmas Eve, seemed better the next morning but grew worse that night. The family decided to postpone the drive home and took him to a local hospital. He was transferred to a medical center in St. Paul, Minn., where he died on Dec. 29, 2012. (AP Photo)
