Pueblo man died quickly from H1N1 flu

We're learning more about the Pueblo man who died from the H1N1 flu. His widow says he got sick on a Sunday and died two days later.

"This sickness is very scary--to where it can take someone right away" said Josette Berumen. Her husband Ronald "Andy" Berumen died Oct. 6 from the swine flu. The 37-year old had a history of seizure disorders.

Josette Berumen says her husband had chills, headaches and a fluctuating high fever. "When I spoke to him at 10:28 a.m. he was fine. Hey said babe I don't feel good I'm going to lay down. I said I'll call you at 11 and that's when you take your tylenol," said Berumen.

But when she called home at 11 o'clock no one answered the phone. She rushed home and found Berumen dead.

The couple was married 5 months ago. Berumen is survived by his wife, three children and his parents.
