ST. LOUIS (AP) - An inmate who complained about chest pain made a daring escape from authorities from a hospital in St. Charles. Lincoln County spokesman Andy Binder said a 24-year-old man was being transported to jail in Lincoln County when he complained of chest pains on Monday. He was taken to a St. Charles hospital to be checked out.

Binder said the inmate was shackled at his hospital bed when his girlfriend caused a distraction in the hallway Tuesday night. When a corrections officer left the hospital room to talk to her, the man ripped his shackles off the post, locked himself in the bathroom, and managed to escape.

He’s still on the run.
