Cai Changpan escapes death penalty with a screwdriver

A Chinese drug trafficker facing a death sentence in Indonesia has escaped from prison using the tunnel he dug. Cai Changpan, also known as Cai Ji Fan, broke out of the prison located in the Tangerang area on the outskirts of Jakarta on Sept. 14. He fashioned a narrow tunnel through the sewage system.

Cai Changpan was put on death row in 2017 for smuggling 135 kg (298 pounds) of methamphetamine. It was his second escape from the prison. He was busted 3 days after his first attempt.
