Correctional Officer Gary Rowe succumbed to injuries received when he was attacked by several inmates who were attempting to escape from MCC San Diego in San Diego, California.

Officer Rowe had entered a cell where he discovered the inmates attempting to escape through the cell window. The inmates attacked him and struck him in the head with debris that they had removed from around the window, knocking him unconscious.

The inmates then shoved him under the cell's bed, where he was located by other officers who began searching for him. He never regained consciousness before passing away.

He was survived by two children.
