Yesterday, there was a daring prison break in Port of Spain. When the gates were opened to let a prison transport van through, some men ‘in Muslim garb’ ran through with weapons and a grenade (allegedly the one in the photo to the left) and three prisoners absconded in a vehicle which later crashed in the vicinity of Port of Spain General Hospital (PoSGH).
The three prisoners Hassan Atwell, Allan “Scanny” Martin and Christopher “Monster” Selby then ran into the hospital forcing staff to flee and others to lock themselves in.
This video was taken by a bystander from outside the hospital grounds. You can clearly hear a barrage of shots.
