We're working on a developing story from the Corrections Officers Training Academy (COTA) located west of Tucson. Working from an anonymous tip we've confirmed with Arizona Department of Corrections Public Information Officer Barrett Marson a cadet died this morning during training on the COTA premises.

Two anonymous sources have given us the name of the person who died but Marsen could not confirm the person's identity since next of kin is still being notified.

Capt. Adam Goldberg with Northwest Fire also confirms that firefighters were called to COTA Wednesday morning at 7:30 for a "medical call." Goldberg says that call involved a cadet who was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

According to COTA's web site, "each cadet is required to participate in a physical fitness and wellness program consisting of aerobic, muscular and flexibility conditioning. Cadets must meet the 50th percentile level of physical fitness, as based on the Canadian standard of fitness."
