Rikers Island Inmates Attempt Escape Using Prison Toilet

Comments: 1  | Leave A Comment

Jail supervisors are now worried the attempt will inspire copycats.

“This has never happened before,” a veteran jail boss told the Daily News. “All the other inmates are going to find out. Word travels fast.”

A department official did point out, however, that the housing unit where the escape attempt happened is meant for mentally ill inmates. Meanwhile, all prisoners in the unit were being moved to a more secure area at the time.

Criminal charges are currently pending against the inmates.
