Incredible moment prisoners break free to save guard having heart attack


This is the moment inmates in Texas broke out of a holding cell to help save the life of a guard suffering a suspected heart attack. CCTV captured the group of eight handcuffed prisoners react after spotting the armed guard slumped over having lost consciousness. The inmates at Parker County jail in Weatherford, Texas, were being held in the basement of a courthouse when the drama unfolded. One of the men attempted to radio for help when they realised he was not breathing, while the others shouted and banged on doors to try and get the attention of officers upstairs. “He just fell over. Looked like an act. Could have died right there,” inmate Nick Kelton told KHOU. “We were worried they [were] going to come with guns drawn on us.”He added: “I watched him die twice. It never crossed my mind not to help whether he’s got a gun or a badge. If he falls down, I’m gonna help him… He’s a good man.”
