No Shawshank Redemption: Prisoner gets stuck in tunnel fleeing Brazilian jail (VIDEO)
The two inmates were trying to flee the region’s largest prison, Licorice, in a daring “Shawshank Redemption”-style scape, but the attempt ended in failure for both.
Maycon Souza da Silva was trapped in the tunnel’s exit. A video taken by police shows the dirt-covered man in the hole, with only his head and hand visible in the footage.
The second prisoner, 23-year-old Rafael da Silva Costa, managed to get out of the tunnel, but was later captured in a forest near the jail, Brazilian media reported.
Da Silva Costa was in jail for assault and illegal possession of weapons.
