Prison break

Six prisoners escaped a Canadian jail after spending four months chipping a path to freedom with nail clippers and other makeshift tools. The prisoners used their tools to remove a heating grill and steel plate and gain access to a brick exterior wall.

While some inmates played cards at a carefully positioned table to block the guards' view, others chipped away at the wall, finally breaking through with a steel shower rod. "Idle hands are the Devil's tools," said the government report, referring to the fact that prisoners at the Regina Correctional Center had little to do in the unit.
