INMATE DIES AT MID NORTH COAST CORRECTIONAL FACILITY

An inmate has died from a suspected drug overdose at Mid North Coast Correctional Centre in Kempsey.

It’s believed the 24-year-old man swallowed a balloon full of drugs, which burst in his stomach.

It’s the second death of an inmate inside a New South Wales prison this month, with a man murdered inside Silverwater Jail two weeks ago.
