A 10-year-old New Canaan boy died suddenly over the weekend, according to the superintendent of schools, and the school community is coming together this morning.

According to Reed, Nico had been seen at a good local hospital in Buffalo-site of the youth hockey tournament-and diagnosed there with flu.

"If you're not vaccinated, get vaccinated now", he said. Even if only partially effective, this season's flu vaccine can lessen severity of symptoms if someone gets sick. There was "no way to know in advance, no sign specifically" showing that Nico's body also was becoming overwhelmed by an infection due to pneumonia secondary to the flu at that point, Reed said.
