Elliptical-Boarding: Gitmo Detainee Dies After Workout

null

A tragedy like this hasn’t happened at Gitmo since the time a detainee got his turban caught in the pulley of a Total Gym® and accidentally hanged himself:

A 48-year-old Afghan prisoner at Guantanamo Bay collapsed and died, apparently from natural causes, after exercising inside the jail, the U.S. military said Thursday.

Awal Gul fell in the shower Tuesday night after working out on an elliptical machine in Camp 6, a communal section of the Guantanamo reserved for well-behaved prisoners, said military spokesman Army Col. Scott Malcom. The prisoner was taken to the base hospital, where he later died.

He leaves behind a camel, belt bomb and two Thighmasters.
