MONTREAL (AP) Police say three inmates have escaped from a detention center in Quebec City with the help of a helicopter.
It's the second helicopter-aided inmate escape in Quebec province in two years.
Provincial police said Saturday night that the three escaped from the Orsainville Detention Center. They gave no other details.
Last year, a helicopter pilot was forced at gunpoint to pluck two inmates from the St-Jerome prison on a quiet Sunday afternoon.
Police caught the two escapees and the two suspects who hijacked the helicopter within a few hours of the escape.
