Three Men Break Out of Prison

CANADA - The manhunt continues for three inmates who used a helicopter to escape from a Canadian prison over the weekend.

The men were outside in the yard of a minimum security jail on the north side of Quebec City when a helicopter swooped in and flew away with them on board.

The escapees were arrested in 2010 as part of a police operation called Operation Crayfish.

All three are alleged to be part of a drug trafficking ring with ties to the Hells Angels.

They are also facing murder charges.

This isn't the first time a helicopter has been used in a daring prison break in Quebec.

In March 2013, two men climbed to freedom on a rope lowered from a helicopter above a jail north of Montreal. They were captured shortly afterwards.
