The 21-year-old aspiring personal trainer filled his Facebook page with photos of himself riding motorbikes and lifting weights.

He celebrated with family again Christmas night, and returned to work Tuesday, but he came home early, because he wasn't feeling well. Olivia Marcanio, Kyler's fiancée, says that he laid down to rest, complaining of chest pain from a cough.

Beverly added: 'I just think he ignored it and thought it'd go away like most people, and I think people need to pay more attention to their bodies'. On Wednesday, he went to a Westmoreland County emergency room, then was flown to UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh where he died not even 24 hours later. "It doesn't seem real", she said.

Flu shots are made from whatever strain of the virus scientists think is most likely to be common in the coming year. That's partly because these deaths are often attributed to flu-related complications, such as pneumonia, sepsis, or heart failure, which means the flu may not actually be listed as the cause of death, the CDC says on its website.

The majority of flu cases will get better with rest and time, but it's important to be aware that things can also get very serious.

. But people with more severe symptoms and those who are at a higher risk for complications (because they have asthma or diabetes, for instance) should check in with their doctor.

Within two days, Baughman's health took a turn for the worse.

The flu generally causes fever, chills, muscle aches, a cough, congestion, runny nose, and fatigue. "Whenever you have a fever for multiple days, don't let it go, get it taken care of".
