30 at Large in Deadly Brazil Prison Break

Police searched Sao Paulo on Monday for 30 inmates who broke out of prison through a 390-foot tunnel with dozens of other prisoners the day before. Eight prisoners died when the tunnel collapsed during the breakout, and one was killed in a shootout with police. Forty-eight escapees were captured, and some could still be trapped underground, officials said. Police were tipped off to the breakout by people who saw inmates covered in mud and sewage crawling out of a manhole in a main avenue. Many were captured as they emerged from sewers before the tunnel collapsed, while others were picked up as they wandered local streets or sought refuge in homes. Guards said the tunnel was 390 feet long and had apparently been dug by accomplices outside the prison, located in a working-class section of the city. It connected a local sewer system to a deactivated shop inside the prison complex and included drains and a makeshift ventilation system. Full Story
