Prison guard gets comp benefits after ‘shanking’ threat (access required)

Nathaniel Rainey was at a restaurant watching a football game when he received a phone call from a coworker. "Well," the coworker said, "when you come in you need to be very careful because we heard some inmates were planning on shanking you." Rainey immediately left the restaurant and had a panic attack in his car. After the N.C. Department of Correction denied his workers' compensation claim, a deputy commissioner awarded Rainey medical and disability benefits. The commission has upheld the award.
