VIDEO: Inmates Plead For Help In Sweltering Heat

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Inmates at St. Louis’ medium-security facility and workhouse on Hall Street can be heard calling out to passers-by for help in a Facebook video, as they sweltered in the heatwave Tuesday.

The inmates were trying to get visitors’ attention by calling out for help, reportedly, because there’s no air conditioning in the building.

A shift commander who answered the phone at the workhouse Tuesday night said she wasn’t aware of any such video posted to social media.
