MONROE, Mich. (AP) - Staffers at the Monroe County Jail in southeastern Michigan are being lauded for saving the life of an inmate who suffered an asthma attack.

Sheriff Dale Malone says in a release that the 21-year-old inmate collapsed Monday afternoon.

Malone says Nurse Jacque Biegajski began cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Sgt. Julie Massengill, officers John Stanish, Aaron Socha, and Mike Grodi, and maintenance technician Chad Nation applied an automated external defibrillator and oxygen mask.

The inmate began to breathe on his own after two sets of chest compressions. He is in stable condition at a Monroe hospital.

Malone says staff involved in helping the inmate will be recognized with life-saving awards.
