A prison in Idaho has come under scrutiny after authorities say guards watched an informant get beat into a coma by another inmate.
According to the Associated Press, guards at the Idaho Correctional Center stood back and watched Hanni El Abed being beaten by a fellow inmate.
Authorities state that El Abed was released from solitary confinement for about 6 minutes before being attacked by James Harver for “snitching” to authorities about drug deals that were taking place between guards and inmates.
On the disturbing video obtained by the Associated Press, you witness as El Abed is beat severely by the Harver and at one point pleads for help, to no avail.
About two minutes after Haver stopped the beating on his own accord, the metal cellblock door was unlocked and Haver was handcuffed as El Abed lay unconscious.
Upon further medical examination, it was determined that Elabad bled inside his skull and spent three days in a coma.
Hanni El Abed has since filed a lawsuit over the attack that is currently pending.
