BRONSON, Fla. (AP) — North Florida authorities are investigating the death of an inmate who collapsed in a county jail.

The Levy County Sheriff's Office says jail staff responded after seeing Terrance Lamar Wiggins collapse early Monday.

Lt. Scott Tummond tells The Gainesville Sun ( ) that staff performed CPR while waiting for paramedics, who took Wiggins to a hospital. Wiggins died two hours later.

Tummond says a preliminary investigation has determined that Wiggins had a medical condition before his Nov. 22 arrest, and he was being treated by jail medical staff. An autopsy is pending.

Wiggins faced several drug charges.
