OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Test results show that a 10-year-old Omaha boy who died suddenly last week didn't have the flu.

Douglas County Chief Deputy Sheriff Martin Belik says Sydney Kola didn't have either Influenza A or Influenza B even though he complained of flu-like symptoms before his death Friday.

Belik said Wednesday that the investigation into Kola's death will continue. The initial autopsy didn't offer many answers, but lab tests might in a few weeks.

Kola died Friday after collapsing at his west Omaha home. Medics who were treated the boy found him unresponsive.

Sydney was a student at Omaha's King Science and Technology Magnet Center. He was a Kenyan national who moved to the United States last year to live with his mother.
