Killers escape maximum security prison Shawshank style

The two prisoners managed to escape a maximum security prison in Dannemora, NY last weekend. They used methods very similar to a popular Hollywood movie, Shawshank redemption. They simply dug their way out of the prison, being the first inmates to escape the facility, also known as “Little Siberia”. The state was offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the capture of the inmates.
