A PRISON warden has been seriously hurt after an inmate threw bleach into his face.
The events took place in the isolation unit at the Sevilla II prison in Moron de la Frontera, according to prison officers’ union Acaip.
The bleach was in a bucket given to the prisoner to clean his cell.
As breakfast was being distributed, T. M. unexpectedly threw the bleach in the face of the official, who, after initial care by prison medics, had to be transferred to hospital.
