Quebec Sees Second Jailbreak Involving Helicopter

Posted: Updated:

MONTREAL (AP) - Police say three inmates have escaped from a detention center in Quebec City with the help of a helicopter.

It's the second helicopter-aided inmate escape in Quebec province in two years.

Provincial police said Saturday night that the three escaped from the Orsainville Detention Center. They gave no other details.

Last year, a helicopter pilot was forced at gunpoint to pluck two inmates from the St-Jerome prison on a quiet Sunday afternoon.

Police caught the two escapees and the two suspects who hijacked the helicopter within a few hours of the escape.
