Bibb County jail inmate found hanging by sheet, now hospitalized

A Bibb County jail inmate was found hanging by a bed sheet in his cell Friday morning.

According to a news release from the sheriff's office, Christopher Derek Hasty was discovered about 11:20 a.m. by sheriff's correction deputies as they were preparing to serve lunch to the inmates.

Hasty, 30, was alone in his cell, the release said. An earlier morning check found Hasty was fine.

Deputies immediately got Hasty down and started performing CPR while other deputies called 911, officials said. He was taken to the Medical Center, Navicent Health where he was listed Friday night in critical condition.

Hasty was in jail on a probation violation charge. The office's Internal Affairs is conducting an investigation, as are sheriff's investigators.
