Coroner: Man, woman from Two Rivers die from flu

TWO RIVERS, Wis. (AP) -- A coroner says a man and a woman from eastern Wisconsin have died from complications of the flu.

Manitowoc County Coroner Curtis Green tells WLUK-TV that a 56-year-old man and a 48-year-old woman, both from Two Rivers, died over the weekend.

Green did not want to release the names of the victims until all family members are notified.

Green says the man and woman lived together. He says the man went to a hospital for treatment but the woman did not.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services only tracks pediatric influenza deaths. So far, no children have died from the flu in Wisconsin this season.
