The Great Escape

Scott Hammell, an illusionist and escape artist, is placed in a straight jacket on Friday by students at John F. Kennedy Catholic School Upper Campus in Warren during “K-Day” – an all-day program that included motivational speakers and school alumni. With him, from left, are students Alec Rossi, Dai’ryon Mitchell, Brianna Dent, Kayla Bucci and London Hua. Hammell set the record for the ”World’s Highest Suspension Straight Jacket Escape” on television’s ”Ripley’s Believe It or Not.”
