Bronx students in uproar over possible H1N1 case

Students at a Bronx school say they are furious it hasn't been shuttered after a student died over the weekend in a death possibly linked to swine flu.

The student, a 55-year-old woman who studied at the F.E.G.S. school on Grand Concourse, died over the weekend. Health Department officials confirmed the Queens woman had the H1N1 virus, but have not said she died of it. The woman also had underlying health problems.

F.E.G.S school officials notified students Wednesday about the woman, but many say the school should be closed.
