Five-year-old Maryland boy dies from the FLU after infection sparked deadly sepsis

By EMILY JOSHU HEALTH REPORTER FOR DAILYMAIL.COM |

A Maryland mother who lost her son to sepsis is now fighting for increased protocols in hospitals, as the cruel disease continues to kill one American every 90 seconds.

Lochlin DeSantis was just five years old in January 2020 when he came down with the flu. But what is usually a relatively harmless illness turned into a far more sinister disease.

Within two days of the onset of his sore throat and fever, he became unable to walk – moving his legs were oddly agonizingly painful.

Just a day later, Lochlin started losing consciousness – resulting in a frantic rush to the local hospital.

Devastatingly, Lochlin – who his mother describes as an ‘old soul’ was dead within 12 hours.

The little boy’s body was attacked by sepsis, an extreme immune system over-reaction that’s responsible for one in three hospital deaths and has been dubbed a ‘silent killer.’

‘Now it’s my mission to see that people have access to anything and everything to prevent the spread of infectious disease to keep their family safe,’ Lochlin’s mother, Brooke DeSantis, a nurse, told DailyMail.com.

‘Sadly, we weren’t able to do that with ours.’

Sepsis is a medical emergency that is caused by the body’s extreme reaction to an infection. It occurs when chemicals released in the bloodstream cause the immune system to go haywire.
