Joshua Hansen dies after battling illnesses

FRESNO, Calif.

That's according to the Facebook page set up by Joshua Mark Hansen's family.

An administrator on the page posted a message this evening, saying quote "Joshua is now in the arms of our lord. Rest in peace little buddy."

Joshua became sick with the flu earlier this month. His aunt told Action News he then got strep throat, which led to bacterial pneumonia.

He was on life support at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford.

But now his Facebook page is filled with messages of sadness and support for his family.
