Police identified the man as Jose Luis Reyes-Leon of Wheeling as he was treated and transported to Glenbrook Hospital, where he was pronounced dead Wednesday morning.

After the investigation Wednesday, foul play was not suspected, and the death is believed to be accidental or medically related.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office performed an autopsy today, and the ruling on the cause of Reyes-Leon’s death is pending further toxicology analysis.
