I love living in Quebec! If I am ever caught short for a story idea, I just need to wait a day or two, and something will come up.
This weekend, individuals hijacked a helicopter at gunpoint, and forced it to fly to a prison where they lifted away two inmates…dangling from the helicopter by climbing rope!
It’s well worth your time to watch the entire news report: CTV News: Helicopter used in prison escape was hijacked at gunpoint
You can’t make this stuff up! Brilliant! Sounds like Grand Theft Auto VI: San Jerome was released a little early.
Of course, crime doesn’t pay, and the lot of the thugs were caught shortly thereafter, which really makes you think about the value of the concept of busting out of prison in the first place. Even if it ain’t Dredd, the law is coming for you, crooks. Be patient, serve your time, then think about going for sessions of aerial tourism. Or better yet, don’t break the law and you can earn frequent flyer miles like the rest of us.
Having said this, I bet Hollywood is taking notes and coming up with a way to jam the concept into the next Bruce Willis mega blockbuster, Die Hard: Die Hardest Another Day: Resurrection.
If they aren’t, I’ve call dibs on the storyline!
