Jun. 28—A Morgan County Jail inmate was injured Friday afternoon when a section of the air-conditioning duct fell from the ceiling at the jail, according to the Sheriff's Office Twitter page.
Sheriff's spokesperson Mike Swafford said the inmate was transported to a local hospital as a precaution for a non-life-threatening injury. Two other inmates were also taken to the hospital as a precaution.
