A Massachusetts man has died from the swine flu, marking the 14th person in the state and the fifth Boston resident to die from the H1N1 virus.

The 65-year-old had multiple health problems, according to the Boston Public Health Commission. Elderly people and those with chronic conditions have a harder time warding off complications from the swine flu.

Young people have also been hit worse than most, but increasing evidence shows swine flu is most deadly for the elderly.
