BY EURIDICE NZIOKA, NAIROBI, 27TH DECEMBER, 2016– A manhunt is under way after six prisoners escaped from a US jail by removing lavatory and then bash through concrete before crawling to freedom through a hole.
The inmates escaped the prison in Cocke County, Tennessee, early on Christmas morning.
Bolts holding the toilet had rusted and the prisoners were able to remove it thus making it easy for them to escape.
They then busted a hole through the concrete behind it, which had been damaged during plumbing repairs.
Authorities were able to capture five of the six inmates but one remains on the run. It was unclear what the men were charged with.
