Prisoners escape to save guard's life

It happened at the jail in Parker County, Texas. An officer, who has not been identified, was guarding eight inmates who were locked in a holding cell. He was joking with them until he sudden fell down unconscious. Inmate Nick Kelton thought it was a joke at first, but then realized the guard had suffered a heart attack, so Nick and his cellmates made as much noise as possible to attract attention to the crisis, but no help arrived.

Realizing their guard needed immediate care, the inmates broke out of their cell to save him. At that moment, they had access to the unconscious guard's gun and keys, but they yelled for help until other deputies came and called paramedics who defibrillated the unconscious guard, saving his life. "It never crossed my mind not to help,whether he's got a gun or a badge," said Kelton. "If he falls down, I'm gonna help him."
