Prison Guards Save Two Inmates

Despite the negative press they have received through media outlets, guards from the Funchal prison saved two prisoners’ lives within fifteen minutes of each other. 

According to a statement from the National Union of the National Corps of the Prison Guard (SNCGP), at 9:15 pm yesterday “an inmate had a heart attack, and was promptly rescued by the guards on duty and due to their swift action and that of health professionals the man survived.”

A second incidence took place at 9:30 pm, where another inmate tried to hang himself.  A prison guard acted promptly, and supported the man’s weight for several minutes until further help arrived.
