Corrections officers being attacked and badly hurt at the hands of inmates. Officials at Attica Correctional Facility say it has been happening more often and they say it's because of overcrowded conditions.
On Wednesday, prison authorities say an inmate broke an officer's jaw and both his eye sockets. The attack happened when the officer questioned an inmate about medication he just received. Two other officers who tried to restrain the inmate were also hurt.
Prison officials say they plan on pressing charges against the inmate.
