n this photo released by Guatemala's Human Rights Ombudsman's office, software company founder John McAfee is pictured in an immigration detention center in Guatemala City, Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012. The anti-virus guru was arrested at a hotel in an upscale neighborhood with the help of Interpol agents, hours after he said he would seek asylum in the Central American country. Guatemalan authorities were awaiting orders from their Foreign Ministry about whether to send him back to Belize, where he is a person of interest in the killing of a fellow expatriate American. (AP)
McAfee was carried out of the Guatemala City detention facility on a stretcher and rushed to the hospital. His lawyer said he had suffered two mild heart attacks.
ABC News reported McAfee was "prostrate on the floor of his cell and unresponsive" and had complained of chest pains earlier in the day.
McAfee was arrested by Guatemalan police Wednesday after entering the country illegally. He was denied political asylum earlier Thursday and had been expected to be deported back to Belize, where authorities want to question him about the shooting death of his neighbor.
