Georgia Inmates Help Save Prison Guard During Heart Attack


Three Georgia inmates helped save a prison guard’s life when he suffered a heart attack inside the lockup.

The three detainees at the Gwinnett County Jail leapt into action when they saw Deputy Warren Hobbs acting strangely and then falling to the prison’s concrete floor and cracking his head, according to police and reports Tuesday.

Locked in their cells, the prisoners did the only thing they could think of — raise a ruckus.

“Kinda was like laying back in his chair and just started (making noises),” inmate Mitchell Smalls told Fox News. “I started hollering and screaming and banging on the door to try to alert everybody to wake up.”

Smalls roused the entire 60-inmate cell block to make noise, which eventually brought Hobbs out of his stupor and allowed him to hit the button that opened up the cell doors.

That’s when Smalls and two other inmates, Walter Whitehead and Terry Lovelace, ran out to help the downed deputy, the outlet said.
