Default Ohio Inmate Jumps Rail, Falls To Death

Ohio Inmate Jumps Rail, Falls To Death

Reed Tried Jumping To Stairwell

POSTED: 10:48 am EST April 1, 2005

FREMONT, Ohio -- A Sandusky County jail inmate rushing to dinner fell more than 15 feet and died after trying to jump from the second floor to a stairwell.

Medics declared Thomas Reed, 19, dead at the scene.

Reed fell Wednesday as inmates were released from their cells to go to dinner. Reed was in the second tier of cells.

Sheriff David Gangwer said Reed was trying to skip ahead in line by jumping a railing from the walkway to a spiral staircase, but he missed. His legs struck an inmate on the first floor on the shoulder, and Reed flipped and fell on his head.

The other inmate wasn't hurt.

Reed had been arrested Sunday on charges of safecracking, burglary and failure to appear for a court hearing.
