CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Officials say a South Carolina teen is among those who has died from complications of influenza.

Local media outlets reported that the Charleston County coroner’s office said 18-year-old Emily Getman of Hanahan died last week at the Medical University of South Carolina hospital.

The Department of Health and Environmental Control reports a child under the age of 4 also died from the flue between April 9 and April 15. DHEC did not release details on the deaths.

DHEC says 62 people have died from the flu this season. Most of those are age 65 or older.

A teen from Lexington County died from the flu in January.
