A Brazilian prison inmate trying to escape from a jail outside the capital city of Brasilia got stuck in a hole in wall, prompting prison guards to snap this video below. 

According to local newspapers, four Brazilian prisoners tried to escape from the Ceres jail by using a shower pipe to create a hole in the wall. Basically they were trying to mimic what happened in the move Shawshank Redemption but failed miserably.

The first inmate was able to squeeze through the hole, scale a 5-metre (16-foot) wall and escape but the second inmate got stuck and eventually had to call for help because he was too fat, media said.

Guards called in fire-fighters who rescued the prisoner by using a hammer and drill.

Amnesty International has criticized the Brazilian government for conditions in the country’s prisons which are frequently overcrowded and subject to riots.
