It wasn't exactly the Great Escape, but a prisoner in Sweden is making international headlines for his unique prison break out.
According to authorities in the Scandinavian country, a man escaped from a prison just to visit the dentist for a really bad toothache.
The 51-year-old suspect told a local newspaper that had tried to ask for help from the facility's medical staff with no results, and he simply couldn't take the pain any longer.
So, according to the Swedish news site TheLocal.se, he sneaked off the minimum security prison's grounds in southwest Sweden, found the nearest dentist and had the tooth pulled.
When the procedure for his inflamed tooth was over, he called police, who promptly drove him back to the prison.
When he was returned to the prison, guards reportedly gave him a warning and gave him an additional day in prison as punishment. He was serving a one-month sentence for an unspecified crime.
