Inmates Break Out Of Cell To Save Prison Guard Having A Heart Attack

Inmates locked up in a Texas jail bust out of their cell in order to save the life of an armed guard who appeared to suffer a heart attack.

What an incredible moment to see inmates bust out of their cell to save the life of an armed guard when he suddenly falls over of an apparent heart attack.

And they did it while they were shackled.

The lifesaving heroics took place in a jail near Dallas, Texas.

WFAA reports it happened on June 23 in a holding cell in the basement of the District Courts Building in Weatherford.

At least eight prisoners were behind a locked door in a small room off to one side. Their lone guard sat outside and had been joking with them when he slumped over unconscious.

“He just fell over,” said inmate Nick Kelton. “Looked like an act. Could have died right there.”

Instead, they took matters into their own hands, knowing that their lifesaving efforts could be interpreted very differently, putting them at great risk.
