Man Quarantined To 4th-Floor Hotel Room Flees Using Oldest Trick In The Book
A man in Australia allegedly made a makeshift rope out of sheets to escape from the fourth floor hotel room where he was supposed to be quarantined.
The 39-year-old managed the dangerous escape from the hotel in the suburb of Rivervale of Perth at around 12:45 p.m. on Tuesday. He remained at large for eight hours before the police tracked him down. He was charged with disobeying an instruction and providing false or misleading information.
Western Australia Police shared pictures of the stunt on Facebook:
The man, whose name was not released, had been ordered to "temporarily quarantine overnight" after failing to comply with the state's strict COVID-19 border rules. He had recently arrived on a flight from Brisbane.
Why the man fled the hotel is unclear. He later tested negative for COVID-19, police said.
The escape came when 13 million people in Australia were further locked out for fear of the spread of the highly transmissible Delta variant.
