It was a muggy Georgia morning with 100 percent humidity and 76-degree heat when a correctional officer collapsed during a prison work detail. But six inmates worked together to save the security officer while they were maintaining the lawns at a local graveyard. The officer was unconscious for about a minute and was not breathing. Together the inmates removed the officer’s gun belt and bulletproof vest to cool him off, opened his shirt and performed CPR. One prisoner took the officer’s phone to dial 911. The Polk County, Georgia, Sheriff’s Office shared a Facebook post commending the prisoners for rescuing the officer. The officer’s family members also provided a free lunch to the inmates who helped save the officer’s life.
