  • CHIPLEY - A Washington County correctional officer's quick action is being credited for saving the life of an inmate at the Northwest Florida Reception Center (NWFRC) in Chipley.
    Sergeant Daniel McConnell, who is assigned to the facility's Emergency Response Team, responded to a call regarding an unresponsive inmate in Dormitory A of the prison's main unit around 11:22 p.m. on Sept. 6.
    Upon his arrival, McConnell determined the inmate wasn't breathing and had no pulse and began to administer CPR until medical staff arrived. The inmate was later transported to an area hospital, where staff stated the inmate wouldn't have made it without McConnell's training and quick thinking.
    "While the officers working at Northwest Florida Reception Center wear many hats and juggle a multitude of responsibilities, their job first and foremost is to ensure the safety and security of inmates, staff, and the community," said NWFRC Warden David Maddox.
    McConnell received a commendation for his live-saving measures from Warden Maddox on Sept. 29, but co-workers say the sergeant remains humble.
    "It's just part of my job," he said.
