Got Stuck in Their Shawshank-style Prison Tunnel
Step one in digging a hole out of your cell, is to make sure it’s large enough for everyone. Four Brazilian prisoners forgot this very simple idea, when they dug a hole in their prison’s shower. The first guy to crawl through the hole made it through okay, but the second guy was a little too big and got stuck, plugging the hole and keeping the remaining two prisoners stuck inside.
Prison guards found him screaming and crying for help and they spent time time taking pictures and video, before calling the fire department for help. This wasn’t the only case in Brazil of this type of escape, however.
There was also another prisoner, in a different prison, who tried to jump headfirst down a communal toilet and swim through the sewer to freedom. He too, got stuck and had to get pulled out, shit-covered, by his ankles. There’s actually a Live Leak video of the whole thing, if you’re into laughing at stupidity.
