This happened at the Parker County Jail in Texas. Eight inmates at the prison saw their guard slump from an apparent heart attack, and called for help. When help didn’t arrive, they took action.
“We [were] worried because they [were] going to come with their guns drawn on us,” an inmate told a local news station.
The men got the deputy’s attention and they called in paramedics to perform CPR, and got the unconscious guard breathing again.
When asked why they saved the guard, another inmate had this to say.
“He’s a good man. It never crossed my mind not to [help] whether he has a gun or badge. If he falls down…what happened? Seems pretty natural [to help] to me.”
Hope your faith in humanity has been restored.
