Nineteen inmates were injured when a roof of a private prison collapsed Saturday near Lufkin, Texas, fire officials said.
Ten prisoners were taken to hospitals by ambulance, and nine were transported as "walking wounded" from Diboll Correctional Center to area hospitals, according to prison officials.
At 11:30 a.m., the sheetrock ceiling of one of the five housing units in the prison collapsed, according to Management & Training Corporation (MTC), which operates the prison.
