A Tehachapi prison guard is recovering after being attacked by an inmate Tuesday.

Investigators say the man threw a cup of hot water in the guard's face and then started stabbing him in the shoulder and neck.

Other guards were quick to jump in and help, shooting the inmate with non-lethal rounds.

That officer is badly hurt but will survive. The inmate is already serving 52 years to life in prison for trying to murder a police officer.
