A group of inmates in a Texas Jail did the unthinkable by breaking all the rules to save a life.

So get this, at least 8 inmates held in Weatherford District Courts building became heroes by saving an armed guard. During his shift at the prison the guard lost consciousness! The group of inmates took notice to the serious situation and sprung into action. After yelling for help and getting no response the group decided to break out of the cell they were housed in. After breaking free they began to bang on the ceiling and walls in an effort to get help.

Lucky for the guard the effort that the inmates put into saving his life actually worked!

It hasn't been announced if the heroes were formally thanked for the good deed but they definitely go down as life savers in my book.
