Marion Boy Dies Of Influenza

Mathias family

A Marion boy is the fifth child in Ohio to die from influenza this season.  Korbyn Mathias died at a Columbus hospital over the weekend.  His parents said he had asthma, and the flu exacerbated his condition.  His family says they are honoring his memory by donating his organs.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
