Inmates Take Over at Pennsylvania Prison


Things have calmed down at a prison in Holmesburg, Pennsylvania after tens of inmates took over the facility late Wednesday night. It all started at the Philadelphia Industrial Correctional Center when an inmate let himself out by breaking his cell window. He then let out nearly 90 other inmates and they revolted against the one guard assigned to the area. Officials say the guard called for backup and more officers were able to help get things back to normal without anyone being hurt. An investigation continues surrounding this incident.
