Four inmates including a Malaysian staged a daring escape from Bali’s Kerobokan prison via an underground tunnel this morning.

The escapees are Tee Kok Ming, from Malaysia , on drug charges, Dimitir Nikolon Ilev, a Bulgarian, on charges of ATM scamming, Sayed Muhammad Said, Indian, drug smuggler, and Australian Shaun Edward Davidson.

Surung Pasaribu, the Corrections chief at the Law and Human Rights Ministry, told News Corporation it was believed the men had escaped through an underground tunnel behind the jail’s clinic.

Details are still sketchy of exactly how the escape went down and the four escapees are still on the run.

The tunnel is just 40cm in diameter and ran from behind the jail clinic, under the jail wall to the outside, ironically just near the guard tower.

If the escape sound familiar to you, it is probably because you might have seen this movie The Shawshank Redemption starring Tim Robbins, Bob Gunton, Clancy Brown, William Sadler, Gil Bellows, Morgan Freeman
