Legionnaires' disease strikes 6, killing 1

ELMIRA, NY The family of 75-year-old Anna Marie Tongate says she died Thursday at a hospital in Elmira about a week after falling ill.

The state health department says Tongate lived at a complex where five others have been infected.

Tongate's family says the residents began displaying flulike symptoms last week but Tongate wasn't brought to the hospital until Sunday.

A Chemung County health official says it could be a week or more before investigators determine the source of the contamination.
