QUEBEC (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – Two inmates in Canada made a daring daylight jailbreak.
The men climbed up a rope to a helicopter.
Their freedom was short lived however.
Early Monday morning police in Quebec took the second of the two men into custody after surrounding a building all night long.
The other inmate was arrested earlier Sunday along with three other people.
Police say Sunday afternoon two men posed as tourists, hired a helicopter and then forced the pilot to fly over the detention center.
They lowered a cable to the inmates and then carried them off to a waiting car.
One of the inmates is wanted in connection to a murder investigation. The other is serving time for several charges, including arson and breaking and entering.
