A female inmate in California ripped out her own eye and swallowed it in her cell after prison guards ignored her screams for four hours.
The gruesome ordeal took place last year at the California Institution for Women in Chino.
The woman, who has not been named, had been screaming every 15 minutes for at least four hours before she got on the floor and tore out her eye.
She had already eaten her eye by the time guards rushed into her cell.
