Detainee dies at Abu Ghraib
BAGHDAD, Iraq – A 60-year-old male security detainee died this morning at Forward Operating Base Abu Ghraib.
The medical staff noticed that he appeared to be ill and took him to the medical facility.
The medical staff determined he was hypoglycemic and provided medical care. Soon after, it was determined he was in renal failure, and surgery was then performed.
The detainee went into cardiac arrest while in the intensive care unit, and died after all life-saving efforts failed to resuscitate him. He was pronounced dead at 4:02 a.m. by an attending physician.
The remains will be transferred to the family upon completion of an autopsy, in accordance with standard procedure.
