NYC jail guard charged in death of inmate who ate disinfectant

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 05:28
A former senior guard at New York City's main jail complex was arrested on Monday on a federal charge that he deprived a mentally ill inmate of medical aid after he swallowed a corrosive disinfectant. Terrence Pendergrass, 49, was a captain on duty at Rikers Island last August when an inmate in the mental health assessment unit swallowed a so-called "soap ball," according to a criminal complaint. Unaware that rules require the soap ball to be diluted in water, an inexperienced guard gave it to the inmate, Jason Echevarria, so he could clean up sewage flooding his cell, the complaint said. Instead, Echevarria swallowed the ball, which contained highly caustic ammonium chloride, it said.

By Jennifer Dobner SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) - A BASE jumper has died after leaping from a peak in Utah's Zion National Park, known for its sandstone cliffs and narrow canyons, in the second such death there in less than two months, the U.S. National Park Service said on Monday. The body, which was spotted by a helicopter crew, was in steep, difficult terrain where canyon crosswinds restrict the use of aircraft, the park service said. Park officials were alerted on Sunday that a BASE jumper was overdue, and were working on Monday to retrieve the body near West Temple, a peak at the southern end of the park, according to a statement from the park service. The sport is illegal in Zion National Park, which draws about 3 million visitors annually.
