Nurse Laura Ryan was on duty at the prison the day Liorancas died. She described arriving at his cell to find a prison officer performing CPR on him.
She applied a defibrilator to his chest, but the machine indicated that no shock should be applied. A short time later, a doctor arrived and declared the prisoner dead.
Mrs. Ryan told the court she was not surprised by this. "There was no sign of life," she said.
