Canadian prisoners escape in helicopter

Even by dramatic jailbreak standards, this escape was particularly brazen.

Two men posing as tourists reportedly commandeered a helicopter from a Canadian tour company, ordered the pilot to fly over a detention center near Montreal, hoisted two inmates using cables or ropes into the hovering aircraft - and zipped away.

All in broad daylight. All in full view of incredulous witnesses.

    What does your comment have to do with prison breaks? Or helicopters?

    I think these are the syrup thieves. So that story is never going away.
