2 workers killed in escape attempt at North Carolina prison identified

Public Safety officials in the state say there were multiple fires set at the prison sewing plant at the Pasquotank Correctional Institution.

After the fire was set, several inmates attempted to escape but were not successful.

According to NCDPS, the prison is under control and under lockdown with all inmates accounted for.

As of Thursday evening, seven patients were at Sentara Albemarle Medical Center, located near the prison in Elizabeth City, N.C., and three had been transferred to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, across the Virginia border.

Darden trained about 30 inmates there to make safety vests and other embroidered items, according to officials.

Pasquotank Correctional Institution houses 725 male inmates in close, medium and minimum security.

Authorities early Friday identified two employees killed during an attempted inmate escape from a North Carolina prison.

The prison, which had 729 inmates on Thursday, was locked down, as were nearby schools.

The fire was extinguished and the prison, in the northeast part of the state, was placed on lockdown, officials said.

Many schools and other institutions around prisons and other high-security facilities, usually have a laid down procedure on immediate measures to take in case of an incident. Their conditions are unknown at this time.

"Those who work in our prisons do a hard and demanding job that is critical to our safety", he said. "Our deepest sympathies go out to the families and co-workers of the employees who lost their lives in service to the state. I want to thank law enforcement and emergency responders for their assistance, and we will do everything we can to assist the investigation". "Words can not express our deep sorrow".

There several other incidents reported this year in the prison.
