Some people are born lucky, while others are born losers. Well, a group of Brazilian convicts belong to the second category. No, it’s not just that they are in prison, but when they spent months digging a tunnel to escape, they found that they had emerged only in the prison yard.
67 of them came out from their tunnel just 30cm short of the main perimeter wall. You know the old saying: A miss is as good as a mile.
The prison guards were bloody sadistic, having discovered the escape plan but letting those clowns carry on their fruitless excavation. They cruelly waited at the tunnel's exit for the men to emerge and promptly took the dumbfounded or just plain dumb prisoners back to their cells. Oh, before they marched them off, the guards had a jolly good laugh - now that was even crueler.
