Shocking Footage Shows Prisoner Attempting To Escape As He Was Being Transported To The Hospital 

A video of a prisoner attempting to escape the back of a moving Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department car has been circulating. In the footage, the inmate is witnessed trying to get out of the vehicle as he is seen hanging through the window of the back of the car shortly before an officer began to detain him. 

According to KTLA5, the inmate from the North County Correctional Facility in Castaic was being taken to the hospital to be cared for. It’s unclear what injury he was being treated for; however, while he was on his way, he reportedly kicked in the back window causing the car to stop. Once the vehicle came to a stop, the unidentified inmate then attempted to make his escape. 

Following the failed attempt, the prisoner was detained and put back into the car as he was still transported to the hospital, says LASD officials. It isn’t clear if he will be facing more charges following the failed escape.
