A drug smuggler escaped the world’s hardest jail just by using a magazine, a bookshelf, and an umbrella and dodged several security guards just by wearing khaki pants.
David McMillian was accused of smuggling drugs in 1993 and was locked up in Klong Prem Central jail.The police arrested the criminal from Bangkok and put him in a prison that was shared by 150 people at a time.
All these 150 prisoners had to share a single bathroom and were living there without a bed.Sleeping time was not fixed, and everyone had to suffer from constant noise because the administration used to keep the lights ON every single second of the day.
Exclaiming about his escape, David told that he did all this by using an X-rated magazine and an umbrella.
It took him 18 months to make this escape plan as he had to run from the toughest jail in the world.A few friends from outside helped him and sent exotic jams and spreads to dodge the guards. McMillan also used hacksaw blades and gaffer-taped cable ties to make his plan successful.
He made a bamboo ladder and used it to run from the prison in August 1996.
He wore khaki pants and placed an umbrella over his head to ditch the guards and successfully did it. After that, he went out of the country using a fake passport given to him by one of his friends and reached Singapore in no time. From there, he went to The United Kingdom but had to spend a few years in Pakistan before doing so.
David was arrested again in 2012 when he was living in The United Kingdom during another smuggling activity and was sent to the Wandsworth Prison.
Now he installs CCTV cameras for a living and had been on TV as well.The 65 –year-old regrets what he did in his past, but there is no use to cry over spilled milk. Share this article with people around you and ask them to live their lives doing productive activities instead of doing illegal stuff.
