A man charged with attempted murder, rape and robbery, was recaptured in north Birmingham after escaping from UAB Hospital by climbing through the ceiling, according to an article on the AL.com website.
The man was taken to the hospital after he claimed to have swallowed a razor blade. An X-ray at the hospital did show an object in his system.
He was guarded and restrained with leg irons and handcuffs while hospitalized. But a hospital staff member asked that the restraints be removed for Austin to shower. A deputy was stationed outside the shower door, heard a bump and looked in to see the man climbing into the ceiling.
The escapee navigated his way out of the building where he carjacked someone outside the hospital.
