On March 17, two prisoners staged a brazen daylight escape from a jail in Saint-Jerome, Quebec, dangling on a rope lowered from a hijacked helicopter. The owner of the helicopter company said the pilot involved in the escape had no choice but to follow orders. Yves Le Roux (le-ROO') of Passport Helico said the 23-year-old pilot picked up a pair of passengers who hired a helicopter for a routine flight over St. Jerome, on the north shore of Montreal. But the pilot (Sebastien Foray) was forced to change his flight plan. (The two escapees were taken back into custody, but not before an exchange of gunfire with police at a rural cabin. No one was injured. Two accomplices were also arrested.)
