Inmates are known for do bad things in local county jail like running drug rackets, committing murder behind bar, or inciting racially based-riots.  Other inmates strive to improve their life through drug treatment programs, religious-based programs, and attending vocational training.  Instead of fighting one others, inmates at the local county jail decided to do some good as reported by NBC LA

Deputies and prisoners united last Friday in an effort to save an inmate’s life at Men’s Central Jail.

The man, in his 40s, was described as gray and lifeless when LA County Sheriff’s deputies found him in his bunk at 10 p.m. Friday, after inmates alerted the dorm officer that the man was having chest pains.

“He immediately stopped breathing. And his pulse disappeared. Deputy (Tunisia Black) was monitoring his pulse at his ankle and noticed his breathing stopped. We immediately fipped him on his back, and started CPR,” Senior Dep. Michael Schrum said.

Schrum, Black, and Custody Assistant Carlos Luna tended to the inmate.

“Then it stopped again and we laid him on the floor. And then we did the chest compressions again, and then the nursing staff arrived,” Deputy Tunisia Black said.

Another inmate volunteered to assist and do a mouth to mouth resuscitation, officials state”

Instead of being a heartless and cruel people, this time the inmates decided to do right thing and save somebody’s life.
