A man-hunt is taking place in Tennessee after 6 prisoners managed to escape by removing a toilet from the wall. The 6 broke the rusty bolts that were meant to hold the toilet in place. They went on to escape through a hole in the wall that was softened as a result of plumbing repairs.

US authorities captured 5 of the prisoners who escaped on Christmas morning (Sunday), although the hunt for the last prisoner is still taking place. It is still unclear what crimes have been committed by the prisoners.
