Two Quebec inmates climbed into a hijacked helicopter to make a daring daylight escape from a prison outside Montreal, authorities said Monday. Both were later recaptured. Police said they believe the pilot was held hostage in the Sunday jailbreak and consider him a victim. He was treated for shock in hospital. Quebec provincial police said early Monday that they had arrested four people about 30 miles north of the Saint-Jerome prison from which the inmates escaped.
