Chester prisoner escapes hospital using helicopter landing pad

    Drakkar Green may be injured and wanted by police, but the man knows a good escape route when he sees one. Police in Chester are hunting for the 20-year-old, who escaped from Crozer-Chester Medical Center by using the hospital’s helipad.

     

    The Delaware County Times reports Green was taken into police custody after a vehicle crash, but then transported to the hospital when he complained of head pain. Hospital surveillance cameras spotted Green taking the elevator to the helicopter landing pad after he slipped out of the handcuffs that were keeping him on his bed.

    Anyone who knows where he is is asked to call 911.
