New York Prison Break: a Hollywood Fugitive Fantasy Unlike Most Escapes

On one hand the new york prison break on saturday draws from hollywood's playbook of gripping drama, but the escape is also a chilling reminder that two murderers are on the loose.
New York governor Andrew Cuomo also compared the escape to a movie saying it would have been overdone as a part of a movie script. . 48 year old Richard Matt and 34 year old David Sweat 34 broke out of the Clinton Correctional Facility by drilling through their walls, navigating through drains, before emerging from a manhole outside the prison. Guards did not realize the shapes in Matt and Sweat’s beds were dummies until 5.30am Saturday.
The convicts left a sticky note behind for guards: a smiley face above the words “Have a nice day!”
