    A prison officer who broke the arm of an inmate is under investigation

    A prison officer who broke the arm of an inmate is under investigation


    The incident occurred when two Corrections officers were allegedly assaulted by inmates at Mt Eden remand prison on February 3.

    Sources say a single mother and well-regarded officer suffered a traumatic brain injury and was "lucky to survive" the attack.

    The prisoner was subject to a "control and restraint" procedure to bring him under control -- when a top-ranked guard allegedly broke the inmate's arm.

    A Corrections spokeswoman confirms a staff member is on gardening leave after the incident, but the department won't comment further.
