Mays Landing Man Dies While Being Admitted to AC Jail
Sources report that a man has died after being apparently mistreated while serving jail time at Atlantic County jail.
NJ.com reports that Mario Terruso Jr., 41, of Mays Landing was transported to Atlantic City Regional Medical Center on Monday night after an apparent health issue wasn't addressed by the jail's staff.
A witness who was working as a jail runner that night said to NJ.com that Terruso was gasping for air and coughing up blood while being held in admissions. Terruso also apparently asked for water, but was denied.
Terruso died at the medical center's Pomona campus around 1 o'clock in the morning. The incident is currently being investigated by the Attorney General's office.
