Real life Shawshank Redemption inspired prison break

Two inmates have escaped from a county jail while awaiting sentencing for their respective crimes. What makes this escape particularly amazing is how effortless it apparently was.

Jose Espinosa and Otis Blunt removed cement blocks from the cell walls and kept it out of sight by covering the hole with a poster of a bikini clad woman. They then squeezed through the hole, jumped to a rooftop below and then climbed at over a 7.5 metre high fence. OK, I will be first to admit they may not have been inspired by the movie 'The Shawshank Redemption' but the similarities are close, and don't be surprised if media outlets started drawing the comparisons as well.

At the time of this post both men still elude authorities.
