On March 28th, 2020, deputies quickly went into action after an adult in custody collapsed after exercising in an outdoor recreation area at the Marion County Jail.  When deputies reached the male he appeared to be having a seizure, after which he stopped breathing.  Deputies and on duty medical staff utilized an AED and initiated CPR on the male.  After several minutes, they were able to successfully resuscitate the male who was taken to a local hospital for treatment. 

When told about the life saving actions taken by staff at the Marion County Jail, Sheriff Joe Kast stated, “Every member of our team at Marion County Jail is dedicated to keeping each and every person in our custody safe.  At a time when we are emphasizing social distancing, these deputies and nurses acted quickly and selflessly to safe this man’s life.  I’m proud to have each of them as a part of our team here at the Sheriff’s Office.”
