The flu has been spreading out of control across the nation.

We first reported that the flu related death tolls were rising  in California but unfortunately influenza has taken year another life, this time it was the cause of death of a 10 year old hockey player from Connecticut.

The boys name was Nico Mazolli, he played hockey for the Connecticut Roughriders. His team was playing in a tournament over the weekend. Before the team headed out on Thursday, Nico complained that he wasn’t feeling well, but even though he wasn’t feeling well he still wanted to be there to support his team.

Our hearts and prayers are with Nico and his family. No family should ever have to go through something like this.

The team has created a memorial fund for Nico’s family.
