The quick actions of these 6 men helped to save a correction officer's life.. it was a hot and humid morning, and they were on work detail. The officer, who's asked not to be identified, was supervising when he suddenly collapsed.
Polk County Sheriff Johnny Moats says: "They really stepped up in a time of crisis and showed that they care about my officers." He added: "That really speaks a lot about my officers too, how they treat these inmates. They treat them like people. Like family."
One of the inmates, Greg Williams said they just did what they thought they needed to do..
"When that happened, in my opinion, it wasn't about who is in jail and who wasn't," Williams said. "It was about a man going down and we had to help him."
