Norwalk Man Dies of West Nile

Norwalk resident Frank Hayes, 75, is the second person to die of West Nile Virus in Los Angeles County this year.

Alyxandra Ponce, 25, said she and other family members first noticed her grandfather, Hayes, was ill Aug. 21.

On the 23rd, he was taken to PIH Health Hospital Downey where he passed away 17 days later.

“This is really sad, he was a great guy,” Ponce said. “We want people to know West Nile  is real.”

Oddly enough, Hayes had no underlying illness or conditions and got regular medical checkups, Ponce said.

    County needs to introduce sterile male mosquitoes, compared to Mediterranean fruit fly, to eradicate the insects population. We stopped the flies, we need to stop virus too.
