A 29-year-old lawyer has become North Carolina’s third flu-related death this year after she suffered an “apparent cardiac event” related to the virus. Scarlett VanStory Levinson, a lawyer at Levinson & Axford, died on Tuesday after being ill for 10 days, ABC 11 reported.
A friend reportedly told the news outlet that she at some point sought help at urgent care. Her husband reportedly discovered her passed out on the floor in the bathroom after she had returned from a jog.

It is not clear if Levinson, who is being described as healthy, had any underlying conditions or if she had obtained her flu shot.
“Scarlett was a valued and beloved member of our firms, remarkable for her generosity, wit, and big heart,” her law firm said in a statement, according to Fox 8. “We have lost a great friend, colleague, and partner. She will be missed by everyone at our firms, our families and the North Carolina community at large.”
