COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A 40-year-old woman has died after suffering from medical issues in an El Paso County jail holding cell.

The Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1TIXA4p ) that Erica Klag died at a Colorado Springs hospital on Thursday after going into cardiac arrest at the jail on Tuesday. Klag was arrested on a warrant for failing to appear on traffic offenses.

Police say on the way to jail Klag told officers she might be having a seizure. Medical personnel were called and she was cleared. She later went into cardiac arrest.

Police say Klag was minimally restrained by police and sheriff’s deputies and that there was no indication of excessive force.

The 4th Judicial District Attorney’s Office is investigating and an autopsy is planned for Friday.
