Thanks A Tunnel

Don’t Try Swimming This Channel

Two burglars who sneaked into underground water tunnels in Kunming, China, to escape from police got lost inside and had to be rescued eight hours later. After they disappeared into a discharge channel above the river, they rang police and asked to be rescued.

FOOTNOTE: The grate escape.

Well... when they get out of prison, they could get rich doing commercials for their wireless provider. Then they can leave their life of crime behind.

Doesn't sound as if they're very good at it anyway.
