Medical examiner: New Canaan child died from flu complicated by pnuemonia

Grief counselors are at West Elementary in New Canaan today following the death of a 10-year-old-student who tested positive for the flu.

According to a profile page for the CT RoughRiders Hockey Club, Nico was 10.

New Canaan Police Tweeted a message of condolence as well.

We will never forget you, Nico.

"Tragically, they were unable to save him", Macedo said in the email.

2 On Your Side is following this developing story and will have a full report First at Five.

New Canaan schools were closed on Monday for the Martin Luther King holiday, but a gathering was held at West School, where Mallozzi attended, to provide support and information for parents and students.

According to the superintendent, Nico was wonderful, friendly and known throughout the school as the voice of the afternoon announcements.

Dr. David Reed, the New Canaan Health Director, told WFSB-TV that anyone, or their family member, who had contact with Mallozzi or his brother should contact a pediatrician.

"He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered", the superintendent said.

"What we do not know, however, is if the flu caused Nico's passing", he wrote in a letter to the school community. The additional cleanings will continue in the months ahead, he said.

Luizz said Tuesday that counselors at all town schools "are ready to assist students and parents tomorrow and beyond, as we continue to struggle through this very bad tragedy together".

"There are no words to describe the loss we feel", said a statement from the Mallozzi family on the site.
