ICE detainee from Guatemala dies in Arizona hospital

PHOENIX -- Federal authorities say a Guatemalan man in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has died at a Phoenix hospital after undergoing treatment for diabetes complications.

ICE officials say 34-year-old Manuel Cota-Domingo was a detainee at the Eloy Detention Center since Dec. 12.

He was rushed to a hospital in Florence on Dec. 20 after complaining of chest pains and labored breathing.

Doctors determined Cota-Domingo was suffering from diabetic ketoacidosis, an emergency condition caused by untreated hyperglycemia.

He was airlifted to a Phoenix hospital, where he was placed in the intensive care unit.

ICE officials say Cota-Domingo was arrested Dec. 8 by the U.S. Border Patrol near Sasabe in southern Arizona.
