(NEWSER) – Prison guards failed to properly make their rounds and check on prisoners the night Ariel Castro apparently hung himself, and then falsified their log book to indicate that they had, according to an Ohio Department of Correction report released today. It wasn't the only problem that night: When guards did find Castro, they called an ambulance, but that ambulance was "significantly delayed," the report says. The ambulance company's contract states that it must respond within 15 minutes, but it took 34 minutes to show up that night, WBNS-10 Columbus reports. It was fully an hour before Castro was taken to the hospital.
