Kalamazoo Jail Inmate Tries Suicide

by

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- An inmate at the Kalamazoo County jail is under suicide watch after he nearly hung himself in his cell very early yesterday. The inmate tied a bed sheet around his neck, and the other end to the bars and jumped from a top bunk.

A deputy discovered him hanging there choking and with the help of other deputies, was able to enter the cell and cut him down and monitor his vitals until EMT’s arrived and took him to Bronson. He was treated and released, and returned to the jail. Attempting to kill your-self apparently isn’t a crime, so no charges will be brought.
