Brooksville, Florida -- Nearly two days after being booked into the Hernando County Detention Center early Sunday morning, an inmate was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

The Hernando County Sheriff's Office says William Collins started sweating profusely and was very pale Monday and was immediately moved to the Medical Supervision Building where he was monitored by a nursing supervisor.

While he was speaking with her, he reportedly passed out but soon regained consciousness. An ambulance was called and he was taken to a nearby hospital.

Collins' family was notified that he was moved to a hospital. Staff there quickly determined Collins was suffering from a very serious medical condition and he needed immediate surgery. Despite attempts to save him, Collins died at 11:17 p.m.

The sheriff's office says Collins' preliminary cause of death is listed as a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. He was 64 years old.
