They both get sent to the county hospital's prison ward and there they meet a black physician Luther Brooks (Sidney Poitier) who is there to treat their wounds. Being the racist bigots that they are, they refuse treatment from Dr. Brooks but Dr. Brooks is left to try to save Johnny's life and performs a surgical procedure. The procedure doesn't go well after Dr. Brooks did everything he could to save Johnny's life. Johnny ends up dying on the operating table.
