SOT, Journalist: "So how did you find out about this incident?"

SOT, Cynthia Jackson, Parent of Inmate:" We haven't found about a lot at all. There is calls about my son in cell. You know, and like somebody got hurt. You check on black rob. You like, what's going on? He hurt. He is a dead. So I am here now to see what's going on."

SOT, Journalist: "So you hear nothing from anyone about your son? So you don't hear a piece? Is everything ok?"

SOT, Cynthia Jackson, Parent of Inmate: "I don't know. I can't say. I don't know what's going on. That's why I am here now. Walk up to the front and see what's going on right now. I am so disappointed in everything. Y'all have a blessed."

Seven inmates were killed and another 17 were seriously injured during eight hours of riot in South Carolina's largest maximum-security prison on Sunday, according to corrections officials.

Officials at Lee Correctional Institution in Bishopville said that the riot was probably caused by gang-related disputes over territory and contraband. A coroner said that it appears many died of stabbing and slashing wounds.

The incident is reportedly the deadliest in recent history. The prison has been host to several security breaches in the past, including a high-profile hostage situation in 2012.

Según los funcionarios de la institución, siete reclusos fueron asesinados y otros 17 resultaron gravemente heridos durante un enfrentamiento de ocho horas en la prisión de máxima seguridad de Carolina del Sur el domingo.

Los funcionarios de Lee Correctional Institution en Bishopville dijeron que los disturbios probablemente fueron causados por disputas relacionadas con pandillas, territorio y contrabando. Un forense dijo que al parecer muchos murieron por heridas punzocortantes.

El incidente es el más mortífero de la historia hasta ahora. La prisión ha sido sede de varias violaciones de seguridad en el pasado, incluida una situación de rehenes de alto perfil en 2012.
