Prisoner Tries To Escape ‘Shawshank’ Style, Fails
If you’ve never seen ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ — SPOILER ALERT! I’m going to give away the ending. The movie came out in 1994. If you haven’t seen it, that’s your fault.
Rafael Valadão, who is incarcerated in Brazil for theft, tried to pull an “Andy Dufresne” and tunnel his way out of prison with a small hammer. He ran into a problem when he wasn’t small enough to fit through the hole he had dug. He actually got stuck in the hole with his torso dangling out. In the photos you can see the guards actually laughing at him.
Firemen had to come and cut him out of the wall. He reportedly suffered a broken rib and was returned to his cell.
