An overweight inmate who tried to escape a Brazilian jail through a hole smashed through a prison wall had to be rescued by firemen after he got stuck halfway through.

Rafael Valadão, the well-built tattooed convict, tried to follow one of his smaller fellow prisoners
who had already made a bid for freedom through the gap.
But he was left screaming for help when he became wedged while others tried to force him through the hole they had made with a metal shower pipe.
“He has a very large physique and is also very tall,” said Lieutenant Tiago Costa, of the local fire brigade.
“The other prisoners tried to push him but he stayed stuck in the wall. He started screaming in pain, and that was when the prison guards were alerted.”
The prisoner tried to break free late on Monday night at a prison in Ceres, near Goiania, according to Jornal Populacional.
