State faults county jail for suicide
(Page 3 of 3)

Correctional officers unsuccessfully tried to revive Bartholomew Ryan on Feb. 24, 2012, after they found him hanging from a bedsheet in his cell.

John Jaronczyk, president of the Nassau County Sheriff Correction Officers Benevolent Association, said, “Like we said from the beginning, the officers did everything based on their training and experience. They immediately saw [Ryan], they cut him down, they notified medical right away, and they began immediate basic life support.

“Medical was supposed to come and take over the scene at that point,” Jaronczyk continued, “and there was a disconnect then, but it wasn’t on the officers, it was on the medical company.”

Asked to comment on this story, a spokesperson for Armor Inc. referred the Herald to the county sheriff’s office.
