SAN DIEGO—San Diego County health officials are investigating the
swine flu death of a 20-year-old Escondido woman, trying to determine
why the virus quickly became fatal to a seemingly healthy person.

Palomar Medical Center director Dr. Don Herip said Wednesday that the
woman, identified by the coroner's office as Adela Chevalier, began
experiencing mild flu symptoms on Friday, including a cough and
fatigue. He says by Monday she was running a high fever, having
trouble breathing and suffering severe muscle aches. She died at the
hospital's emergency room later that night.

County health officials say tests also were being conducted Wednesday
night on a specimen taken from a young man who died recently. They
suspect he also was infected with swine flu.
