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.
