Unofficial reports indicated that the guards cut the man down after he was found hanging by his shoelaces.
Potter County Sheriff Ken Sauley confirmed the incident, but did not identify the inmate or release any details of the incident, saying only that the attempted hanging is under investigation.
He reported that the inmate was not seriously injured in the attempt and after treatment at Charles Cole Memorial Hospital, was returned to the jail. Coudersport Ambulance and medic 6 transported the inmate to the hospital shortly after 6:00 am on Thursday.
