An inmate serving time at High Desert State Prison for attempted sexual assault died Wednesday.

According to the Nevada Department of Corrections, David William Parks, 55, collapsed in the prison dining room, apparently of natural causes.

Officials said Parks was given CPR in the dining room before being taken to the prison infirmary and ultimately to a Mercy Air Paramedic.

Parks was pronounced dead while en route to a medical facility, the corrections department said.

His body was released to the Clark County Coroner's office, which will determine Parks' cause of death.
