Rikers Island guards failed to act while detainee tried to hang himself

Four New York City corrections officers were suspended this week after failing to intervene in an attempted suicide that left an 18-year-old inmate in a coma. The officers reportedly took 7 minutes to intervene despite being able to watch Nicholas Feliciano on a guard desk where officers can monitor inmates through video feeds. Feliciano had been arrested last month because of a parole violation.
