A group of cellmates in a Texas prison broke free last month to save a jailer’s life after he collapsed from a heart attack. The Parker County jailer only has these prisoners to thank who put their lives on the line to help him.
The incident happened on June 23 in a holding cell located in the basement of the District Court Building in Weatherford.

The jailer stood guard outside the prisoners’ holding cell and was joking with them when he suddenly collapsed onto the floor. The prisoners, at least 8 in number, shouted for help but realizing the critical situation, somehow managed to break free of their cell to help the jailer.

“He just fell over. Looked like an act. Could have died right there,” said Nick Kelton, one of the inmates, who is serving time for dealing drugs. “We were worried they were going to come with guns drawn on us.”
After the jailer showed no pulse, the inmates banged the door to garner attention which thankfully alerted the other guards to come running.

“They thought it was a fight. They thought we were taking over,” reported another inmate Floyd Smith.

Sergeant Ryan Speegle said the situation could have worsened, “He had keys. Had a gun. It could have been an extremely bad situation.” Speegle had first roughed up one inmate who was standing on top of the unresponsive guard.

After minutes of administering CPR, the paramedics arrived and the jailer finally sighed the life-affirming breath.
The jailer, whose identity remains protected, is recuperating well and is expected to resume work next week.
The inmates are back inside their cell, but one has to applaud their effort that saved a man’s life without putting anything at risk barring their own prison sentence.
