LOS ANGELES (AP) - Swine flu has been ruled out as the cause of one of two recent deaths being investigated by the Los Angeles County coroner's office.
Coroner's Assistant Chief Ed Winter said Tuesday that swine flu was not found in a La Mirada man.
Winter says lab testing is pending in the case of a Long Beach man but swine flu is now not suspected.
Both deaths were reported to the coroner's office on Monday.

Six teachers at a private school in Mira Mesa tested negative for swine flu and the campus will reopen for classes on Wednesday, county health officials said today.
Christ the Cornerstone Academy was closed today as a precautionary measure while tests were conducted to see if the six teachers suspected of having swine flu actually contracted the disease, said Dr. Wilma Wooten, San Diego County's public health officer.
The teachers were believed to have been exposed to the virus by a student at the school who tested positive for it, according to Wooten.
With the teachers testing negative, the school was cleared to reopen.
