Video: Is this the dumbest jailbreak ever?

Maybe these guys could do with watching re-runs of hit TV series "Prison Break".

Four inmates were caught trying to escape a Brazilian prison after the hole they made in their prison cell wall was too small for them to pass through.

It was so small that the second prisoner got stuck midway through the escape, keeping the others inside. To add insult to injury, the prisoner injured himself so badly in the process that he started crying out for help.

That's when prison guards stumbled on the escape with a man stuck in the wall.

According to  Brazilian newspaper Jornal Populacional (in Portuguese), the guards even too photos of him -- which are going viral now -- as they waited for the fire department to free the prisoner.

Of the four, only the first one managed to escape the Ceres prison located near Brazili's capital of Brasilia.

Brazilian media say the hole in the wall was made using a metal pipe from the prison's shower. It has since been fixed.

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C. Still others have claimed that Jesus was born in the spring, based on stories about shepherds watching over their flocks in fields on the night of Jesus' birth — something they would have done in the spring, not the winter.
