Utah and Arizona report swine flu-related deaths

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah officials reported the state's first death associated with swine flu and Arizona recorded that state's third victim, pushing the national death toll to 10 people. David Sundwall, executive director of the Utah Department of Health, said a 21-year-old man with swine flu died Wednesday morning at a Salt Lake City hospital. Sundwall said the man was overweight and had chronic medical conditions, including respiratory problems and other health issues, that would put him at risk. In Arizona, health officials said a 13-year-old boy from Tucson also has died with swine flu. The teenager died Friday of complications from the flu.
