Davie Man Is First Broward Swine Flu Death

Third Florida death is 58-year-old who had chronic heart problem

Authorities say a Davie man with a chronic heart problem was killed by swine flu.

A state lab in Jacksonville released test results Tuesday, confirming 58-year-old Michael Waldfogel as the third person in Florida to die from the H1N1 virus.

The Broward medical examiner's office reports that Waldfogel visited a doctor several weeks ago complaining of typical flu symptoms and was given medication. He was last seen June 20 and was found dead in his home four days later.

Florida has had 941 cases and two other deaths, one in Miami and one in the Orlando area.
