Police flood Suffern hospital after inmate bus accident

SUFFERN - A sea of police officers were stationed at Good Samaritan Hospital today to keep close tabs on 16 inmates who were transported there after a New York City Department of Corrections bus flipped over on I-87.

Hospital officials say there was an officer assigned to every handcuffed prisoner as they were checked out and there was never any kind of escape attempt. All 16 offenders involved in the accident have been returned to the state prison system, according to the New York City Department of Corrections.

Norman Seabrook, president of the Correction Officers' Benevolent Association, says he's grateful no one was seriously hurt in the accident.

"The officers are doing well considering the circumstances and, like I said, no broken bones," Seabrook said.
