Inmates Rush To Save Police Officer After He Suffers A Heart Attack

Inmates Rush To Save Police Officer After He Suffers A Heart Attack

Security footage captured what happened when inmates at a jail in the US saved the life of a police officer who had suffered a heart attack.

Terry Loveless, Walter Whitehead and Mitchell Smalls banded together after they saw Deputy Warren Hobbs fall unconscious at Gwinnett County Jail, Georgia, earlier this month.

The three prisoners, who were locked in their cells at the time, had noticed the officer was feeling unwell, and when he collapsed at his desk they began banging on their walls and calling for help.

The commotion caused by their cries managed to rouse Deputy Hobbs from a state of unconsciousness and he was able to hit the button to open the doors for some of the inmates' cells.

The prisoners then immediately radioed for help and called 911.

Hobbs was rushed to hospital on 10 July and was later discharged and went home to continue with his recovery.

As a thank you for the inmates' brave actions, Chief Deputy, Lou Solis, arranged for the entire unit of the jail to have a pizza party.
