A correctional officer is recovering from a stabbing at Corcoran State Prison. Authorities say an inmate stabbed the prison guard in the arm Friday morning in the security housing unit.

That's where prisoners who commit crimes in prison are locked up. The attack occurred when officers entered the inmate's cell for an emergency medical incident.

The officer was sent to a hospital for treatment -- but is expected to be ok.
