the detainee ward, where blood work was drawn and several medications were given for
dehydration pain in his abdomen. He was also given a Nasogastric Tube to relieve pressure from
his abdomen as well as medication to relieve constipation. COLV4%, stated Detainee FADIL was
monitored throughout the night and sometime between 0620 and 0630, 19 May 04, Detainee FADIL
removed his Nasogastric Tube. An attempt was made to place the tube back in without success.
Detainee FADIL was taken to X-ray and while in X-ray, he stopped breathing. He was immediately
brcught to the emergency room where emergency breathing procedures were given. Detainee
FADIL recovered shortly thereafter. At about 0800, an attempt to reinsert the Nasogastric Tube was
made. While inserting the tube, Detainee FADIL stopped breathing again. Cardio Pulmonary
Resuscitation (CPR) was attempted for 20 minutes as well as lifesaving medication without
success. Blood was drawn for testing which revealed Detainee FADIL's Creatine Phospho Kinase
(CPK) was 3400, to which the normal is 100. COL -7d4:5 •tated this indicated massive heart muscle
damage. He said he pronounced Detainee FADIL dead at 0915, 19 May 04. COL-A&3 stated, in
retrospect, he believed in reaction to the dehydration, Detainee FADIL's body cut the blood flow to
non-critical organs of the body, which may have caused the abdominal pain. He also stated,
Detainee FADIL had to have had a history of heart disease due to manner in which he died. (See

Station, BCCF, AGI, who opined that a continuous amount of potable water or one liter of water per
hour is sufficient to prevent dehydration. He also stated, that through his experience with the
detainees, they do not drink the water as they should and are constantly encouraged to drink more.
