A partner to Dylan’s mother, Mike Medwin, said the county’s medical examiner’s office told him that Dylan died from pneumonia brought on by the flu. The boy did not receive a flu vaccine before catching the virus.
Dylan's Okeeheelee Middle School classmates were devestated by the news. On Friday, they dressed in orange, Dylan's favorite color, to honor him at school. Family and friends celebrated the seventh-grader's life on Saturday morning at Trinity Church International on South Military Trail in suburban Boynton Beach.
The Palm Beach County Medical Examiner’s Office says they are still waiting for final confirmation from the preliminary findings.
