Two Bexar County Jail inmates attempted to hang each other within less than 15 minutes this morning.
The first inmate,who was in the process of being booked for DWI and evading arrest charges was stopped with only minor injuries and was treated at the jail.
The second inmate had to have the rope around his neck cut down by a jailer. He immediately began to perform life savings measures, and was rushed to the hospital were he is expected to survive.
The jailers in both cases will be nominated for the Sheriff's Department life saving medal by Sheriff Salazar.
