ANCHORAGE, Alaska - A Fairbanks man who died Saturday is the tenth death in Alaska from swine flu.

Seven of the deaths have been Fairbanks-related. The state Health Department says it's looking for the Fairbanks connection as it monitors people hospitalized with the virus in Alaska.

State Health Department spokesman Greg Wilkinson told The Anchorage Daily News the most recent victim was a man in his 50s who had multiple health problems. And, nine of the 10 who died had underlying health conditions. The tenth was a child.
