She tested positive for the flu after her death, but it is not clear if she had a flu test before she died, sources told NY1.

A 5-year-old who died after falling ill in her Brooklyn home may be the fourth young victim of the flu this winter. Sources said she had suffered from a fever for a week.

The child was discovered in the bathroom by her mother and rushed to Brookdale Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

A fourth New York City child has died from flu-related complications, police sources said Sunday.

An ambulance was called to the Bayview Houses at 8 p.m. Saturday for a child with flu-like symptoms and difficulty breathing.

The city's medical examiner's has not released an official cause of death.

The New York City Department of Health has not yet confirmed this latest death is flu related. It mutates easily and therefore this year's vaccine has not offered the best protection.
