Nico Mallozzi Flu Death: 10-Year-Old Boy Dies of Complications

Doctors say the boy had a severe case of the flu which caused a pneumonia complication that lead to sepsis and death

A 10-year-old New Canaan student died suddenly Sunday morning after becoming ill while returning home from a hockey tournament.

Mallozzi, a hockey player, began feeling ill last week before a tournament in NY but wanted to be with the team, .

He played defense for the CT Rough Riders of the Atlantic Youth Hockey League. His parents made a decision to take him home, but rushed to the Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo, New York, when he took a turn for the worse.

Mallozzi's brother also tested positive for the flu, Reed said, adding: "This has been one of the worst flu seasons and I think it will continue until March". The team says Nico never had any contact with anyone at any hockey rinks and left WNY. The team created a memorial fund for Nico's family. According to a tweet from Xavier High School Headmaster Dave Eustis, there will be a moment of silence held in Mallozzi's honor at the New Canaan/Xavier game on January 16.

You are welcome to join us at West on Monday morning between 10:00 - 12:00 to be together in love and support.

Schools in New Canaan were closed Monday for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, but Mallozzi's school held a gathering for parents and students to provide information and support.

"The men and women of the NCPD express our deepest condolences to the Mallozzi family with the tragic passing of their son Nico". He was a "wonderful, enthusiastic, outgoing boy who was known school-wide for his high spirits, limitless energy, and quick smile", Luizzi said.

Members of the community also expressed their condolences to the Mallozzi family via Twitter.

It was unknown whether Nico and his brother were vaccinated. "We're really going to miss him and remember him very fondly".

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Mallozzi's family. "At this point, it has been confirmed that Nico had been diagnosed with Influenza B, a strain of the Flu that is now spreading in the Northeast".
