State police are investigating a prisoner's attempt to escape from maximum-security Great Meadow Correctional Facility in the town of Fort Ann.

NewsChannel 13's media partners at The Post-Star report that the inmate managed to get over a 30-foot-high, razor-wire topped fence on Wednesday.


Police say he was climbing a second fence when he was caught.

The Post-Star reports the prisoner was walking with a group of inmates to the chow hall when he ran out.
