Man visiting son trapped in jail for 30 hours

A man was trapped in a Cook County jail visiting room for 30 hours over the weekend

The man went to visit his son Saturday, something he does every week.

This weekend, the visit was moved to an area in the super-maximum security area.

The sheriff's office says the man went into a door that was propped open and it closed behind him. He pounded on the concrete walls, but no one heard him.

Eventually, the man broke a sprinkler head and the fire department was called out and found him.

He was stuck in the room from 6 p.m. Saturday until 1 a.m. Monday.

The man needed some stiches on his thumb from breaking the sprinkler.
