GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A Kent County corrections officer is recovering from a brutal beating at the hands of an inmate trying to escape the jail. Not only did he not escape, but other inmates came to the guard's defense.

Sheriff Lawrence Stelma said the corrections officer was bruised and traumatized after the beating, which lasted about 10 minutes.

The officer was alone in the Pod, a layered security area holding between 40-60 inmates. Only one guard is assigned to the area at night because inmates are supposedly locked in their cells.
