CPR was attempted on a man who was found dead in his cell. The man serving time for first-degree murder was found dead in his cell at Dorchester Penitentiary in New Brunswick.
At the time of his death, Zane Weatherbee, 49-years old was serving an indeterminate sentence since November 2, 1982.
Based on a release by the Correctional Service Canada, the staff members quickly delivered CPR and emergency services were called, but Weatherbee could not be revived.
Similar with all cases involving the death of an inmate, the police and the coroner were notified and the correctional service will carefully review the circumstances surrounding the incident.
