3 prisoners rushed out of their cell to save a deputy’s life

The Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office (GCSO) praised three Georgia inmates for saving a deputy’s life.

“We are deeply appreciative to these three inmates for the courage, determination and kindness they displayed,” the GCSO said in a Facebook post.

According to the statement, when the deputy was conducting his security measures in the housing unit, the convicts noticed that he appeared to “be feeling sick,”.

Although the inmates were locked in their cells, they kept an eye on him as he returned to his seat at the deputy desk, where he lost consciousness and fell onto the concrete floor, splitting his head open.

Prisoners whose rooms were close enough to see what was happening started banging on their doors. Many prisoners banged on the doors shouting for the deputy, who lay unconscious and severely bleeding on the floor. The entire facility soon became deafeningly noisy.

The deputy later stated that he was not aware that he had been unconscious, but he heard repeated shouts of his name from prisoners and heard what appeared to be pounding drums.

He thought that a prisoner required assistance right away and he managed to stand up and press the control panel to unlock the cell doors.

Three prisoners hurried from their rooms to help the deputy, who had once again lost consciousness. Using the deputy’s desk phone and radio, the prisoners requested assistance.

They were successful, and assistance showed up quickly. The deputy recovered at home until he could return to duty.

“These inmates came to his aid because our deputy, like most law enforcement officers, treats people with the dignity they deserve. These inmates had no obligation whatsoever to render aid to a bleeding, vulnerable deputy, but they didn’t hesitate,” the statement said. “Many people have strong opinions about law enforcement officers and criminals, but this incident clearly illustrates the potential goodness found in both.”
