A family from Iowa have been left shocked and confused after their three-year-old daughter died from the flu less than three days after she fell ill.
Her family are struggling to understand how a vaccinated and otherwise healthy child could die from the flu so quickly.
The Mail Online reports:
Ayzlee McCarthy, of Elk Horn, spent December 26 running around the house with her siblings and playing with her Christmas gifts: dress-up clothes and a doll of the snowman OlafAyzlee from the Disney movie ‘Frozen.’
A day later, her legs ached so badly, she couldn’t walk.
Then on December 28, Ayzlee was rushed to a hospital in Des Moines and hooked up to an IV.
She died the following morning, just 13 days after her third birthday, of influenza A and B with sepsis, The Des Moines Register reported.
Her distraught mother, Amber McCarthy, is struggling to understand.
She was healthy, she had a flu shot — the whole thing is so unreal,’ Amber McCarthy told the Des Moines Register.
‘This shouldn’t be happening in 2015,’ the mother added.
