NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – There’s an update Thursday in the case of four Rikers correction officers who were suspended for allegedly standing by as an 18-year-old inmate tried to hang himself on Thanksgiving day.

The parole warrant against that teen has now been dropped.

Nicholas Feliciano was arrested on a parole violation and placed at Rikers Island 10 days before his suicide attempt.

He’s in a medically-induced coma at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens.

The identities of the suspended correction officers and captain have not been released.

The incident is under investigation.
