Prisoner mails himself to freedom

An inmate escaped from jail in Germany by posting himself out of prison in
a giant FedEx box of dirty laundry.

Drug dealer Hans Lang, 42, hid in the laundry room after other inmates had
finished work there and bundled himself up in dirty bed sheets in the large

The package was then loaded onto a van and driven through the gates at
the prison in Willich near Dusseldorf.

He is understood to have waited until the driver made his next stop before
getting out of the box, picking the lock on the back of the van and
running off into nearby woods.

It was only discovered that he was missing after the driver saw the empty
box and realised the lock to his van had been picked from the inside.

A spokesman for police who are now hunting him said: "It's the kind of
thing people think only happens in films - but in this case it is very real."
