Chatham County Coroner Bill Wessinger said the kid, who had no hidden health issues, experienced the seizure due to a high fever, CNN reported.
The cause of death was drowning, secondary to seizure due to fever from the virus, Wessinger stated.
“This kids death is absolutely tragic, and we are praying for their liked ones in this tough time,” Gov. Brian Kemp said in a statement.
