Santa Maria Matamoros, Oaxaca, Mexico, April 30, 2009--Benito Cardenas, 41, sits during his wife's funeral ceremonies. Juana Toribio, 39, died on April 28 at Mexico City's Institute of Respiratory Illnesses.

Although her death certificate says she died of atypical pneumonia, Mexican health authorities think Toribio was a victim of the swine flu virus.
