PIERRE, S.D. (AP) _ A second person from South Dakota has died from West Nile disease.
The person was from McPherson County.
The death brings the total number of deaths from the mosquito-borne disease in the state to two. The first death from the disease was reported last month. That person was between the ages of 80 and 89 and lived in Hughes County.
The South Dakota Department of Health says 119 cases of West Nile have been reported so far this year.
Since the first case in 2002, South Dakota has reported more than 1,800 West Nile cases.
