 A group of prison inmates in Florida used the skills that got them into prison in the first place to save the life on a one-year-old girl who had been accidentally locked in a car.

 

The minimum-security prisoners were working on a highway repair when it happened. Their guards watched them, and one actually praised their actions.

 

One of the most famous stories of American writer O. Henry (master of the last-page plot twist) involved a reformed safecracker in a similar position, throwing away his freedom to rescue a child. The consequences weren't so serious in this case, but I was reminded of that story when I read this.

I think this should count for a severe reduction in sentence time.

Oh, is that who that was?  Wife was going on last night about how some Karl dude died, and it was sudden cancer and it was tragic, and I was smiling and nodding while thinking "Who the f**k is she talking about?"
