Brave Inmates Choose to Save Unconscious Officer and Called 911 instead of Escaping Scene

​Six inmates from a correctional facility in Georgia did the nicest and unthinkable thing when they had a great chance to escape; they saved an armed officer and called 911 with his cell phone, after he suddenly collapsed while supervising their work at a cemetery. 

One reached for the cell phone of the unconscious officer while the others ripped off his bulletproof vest so they could perform CPR.

 One of the inmates said that 

“It wasn’t about who is in jail and who wasn’t, It was about a man going down and we had to help him.”

Polk County authorities reports that shortly before he collapsed, the officer told the inmates that he was not feeling so good while they were working at a cemetery last Monday, in 76-degree heat with 100% humidity.

The County sheriff, Johnny Moats said: 

“My guys were thinking the worst on their way over there, but when they got there, all the inmates were with the officer. All were accounted for. They took care of him.” The officer then received medical attention and was fine.

As a reward for the inmates, who “really stepped up in a time of crisis,” the sheriff’s office provided them with a free pizza lunch and the officer’s family provided dessert.
