Individual Survives Fall At Davis County Correctional Facility
FARMINGTON, Utah — An individual was transported to the hospital in stable condition after they climbed over a railing on the second floor of a Davis County correctional facility and fell to the first floor.
The incident happened Saturday afternoon in one of the facility’s designated quarantine units. Inmates are held in these units for the first 14 days of their incarceration to allow for COVID-19 testing.
Correctional officers and medical personnel provided initial care before the individual was taken to the hospital.
Officials said the individual will then be medically furloughed to his family.
“We’re incredibly grateful that the outcome is not worse and we are hopeful this individual will have a swift recovery,” said Sheriff Kelly V. Sparks. “We are committed to providing those in our care and custody all of the medical and mental health resources they need.”
Mental health counseling is being provided to anyone who witnessed the incident.
An investigation is currently underway.
