A Milwaukee man is one of the two people who died in a sweat lodge at an Arizona resort. 40-year old James Shore of Milwaukee was in the makeshift lodge in Prescott, Arizona when he and 20-other people were overcome and rushed to a hospital.

One other person, a 38-year old woman from New York also died.

The group was taking part in what's described as a spiritual cleansing ceremony.

Investigators have not yet determined causes of death, but they have ruled out carbon monoxide poisoning.
