Inmate, 51, dies at Alachua County jail

“After a nurse took a blood sample, Sanders was sitting in a chair at the nurse’s station in Pod H when he had a seizure, Kelly said. He became responsive again before suffering a second seizure.

The nurse and jail staff started CPR, Kelly said.”

There were other reports, and none of them mentioned the nurses using a defibrillator, which I hope was just a journalistic oversight. Although far less likely than heart attacks, seizure deaths are common enough to have earned an acronym – SUDEP – which I hope that those entrusted with caring for others will Google.
