Authorities say that the roof on a privately-owned prison in East Texas collapsed Saturday morning, resulting in the injuries of 20 inmates and trapping many more. The unit at the Diboll Correctional Center where the incident happened housed 84 inmates.
All 19 were transported to a local hospital for evaluation. One was then flown to a hospital here in Houston. At this time, we don't know the condition of the patient who was airlifted. As for the others, we're told the injuries don't appear to be serious.
