"He's a diabetic and he's been diabetic for several years," said Ester Zenteno, Martinez's daughter. "He does take insulin and I can't say 100 percent that he took it this morning. I wasn't with him this morning, but he's real good about it. I'm assuming that his sugar went out of control."

The Lake Worth Fire Department and several other emergency crews are on the scene.
