A Northward prisoner died Wednesday while in custody, according to a press release issued Friday by HM Prison Services.
Durney Ebanks, 53, was found lying unresponsive on his bed by two prison officers. He was serving a 16-month sentence.
Life-saving measures were administered by officers prior to EMTs arriving on scene, according to the release. Ebanks was transported to hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
No foul play is suspected, according to the release. An RCIPS inquiry into the death is under way, as per protocol.
Ebanks was sentenced in June this year for causing fear or provocation of violence as well as idle and disorderly conduct.
