China Pacific Life Insurance Co., Ltd (CPIC Life) has paid 100,000 yuan (12,500 U.S. dollars) to the family of a Chinese bird flu victim, said sources with the company Friday.

This is the first compensation case related to the bird flu epidemic in China.

On February 24, the Hunanese family of a woman surnamed Long reported to CPIC LIfe's Shenzhen branch, where Long's company had insurance for her since January 1 this year, that Long had died of bird flu during the Chinese Spring Festival holiday.

CPIC Life confirmed here Friday that its Shenzhen branch has finished the 100,000-yuan compensation.
