MONTREAL - One of the men who escaped a Quebec prison last Sunday dangling from a helicopter said he felt like Superman as he soared over the barbed-wire fence.
Benjamin Hudon-Barbeau said he could hardly describe his feelings during the spectacular escape from the Saint-Jérôme prison.
"I was like Superman," he told QMI Agency in an exclusive interview about his short-lived escape. "It was crazy."
Hudon-Barbeau, 36, said many people think he planned the caper. In fact, others planned it and he was just offered a place among them.
"An offer like that, you don't refuse. It was presented to me by someone who knew I was going through a hard time inside."
