Inmates Save Guard's Life From Attack By Another Prisoner (VIDEO)

A Florida prison guard has some unlikely heroes to thank for saving his life - the very inmates he guards. The man was attacked by a prisoner while sitting at his desk and would have been killed had it not been for two other inmates hearing the commotion and running over to tear the attacking prisoner off the deputy. One of the rescuing inmates even got on the radio to call other officers to come and help.
