QUEBEC, Canada (FOX 26)
Canadian authorities have just released a shocking video of a daring prison escape that appears to be straight out of a movie.
Two daring inmates can be seen escaping from a Quebec detention center back in 2013 -- via helicopter!
The video, which is now being used in their trial, shows Benjamin Hudon-Barbeau and Danny Provencal trying to reach a chopper that had been hijacked by two of their friends.
According to CBC News
, the armed accomplices forced the helicopter pilot to land on the roof of the Quebec's Saint-Jerome detention center.
They dropped a rope so the two inmates could climb up to the chopper.
But they never made it all the way up.
In the dramatic video, the two inmates can be seen dangling off the rope as the chopper flies away.
Unfortunately for the inmates, the ride to freedom didn't last long.
Both the inmates and accomplices were captured within hours.
