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.
