First American Swine Flu Death Grandson Of Mexican Media Baron

The baby in Texas who died from the swine flu was the grandson of media baron Mario Vazquez Ráña, 76. The toddler came from one of Mexico’s most influential families.
The toddler became ill while with his mother vacationing in Brownsville. He was not an illegal immigrant as has been reported in the press. After the child became ill he was taken to Texas Children’s Hospital.

Miguel Tejada Vazquez
and his mother were in Brownsville for much of April. The family visited Houston’s Galleria Mall on April 5.

Miguel’s family is very well connected in Mexico. His grandfather not only owns 41 newspapers but has been involved with the Olympics organizations since the mid-1970s.

His great-uncle Olegario controls one of the largerst private Mexican health providers, the Angeles Hospital chain, a newspaper and Mexico’s Camino Real hotels.

Miguel is survived by his parents Miriam Vazquez and architect Jose Manuel Tejeda and five siblings.
