Oklahoma prisoners use ropeline for 12th floor jailbreak


Pablo Daniel Robledo and Jose Balentin Hernandez resorted to an old-fashioned ropeline to try and break out of their 12th floor cell at the Oklahoma County Jail. They made the rope from bedsheets, while climbing out of prison early one morning. Hernandez was re-arrested shortly after breaking out as he broke his leg. Robledo, who was behind bars for murder, remains at large.
