The individual had been in custody since July 31 for drug possession and was brought to the hospital on August 4 for medical treatment. According to the police, the prisoner used bedsheets to rappel from a fifth-floor window, reaching a rooftop below. From there, the prisoner made it to the street and hailed a taxi.
