LAS VEGAS (AP) - Health officials are reporting a swine flu-related death in Clark County.

The Southern Nevada Health District says a 51-year-old man with an underlying medical condition was hospitalized on June 25 and died on Friday.

Health officials say they cannot release additional details because of patient privacy concerns.

The death appears to be the third in Nevada related to swine flu.

In late June, a 33-year-old Clark County man infected with the swine flu virus died. The man had no underlying heath conditions and had been hospitalized since June 15.

Also last month, health officials reported the death a 70-year-old woman - a New York state resident - who was infected with swine flu.
