Man escapes from St. Anns Hospital

The search is on for a male patient who escaped from the St. Anns Medical Hospital. The man was a patient of Ward 27, the Ward that houses those who were sent by the court for psychiatric evaluation and assessment.

Staff at the Hospital say the man was a suspect in a murder case but CEO of the North West Regional Health Au­thority, Terron Gilchrist, could not confirm this. He did confirm that the man escaped from an abandoned section of the Ward between 7:00 and 8:00p.m last night.

Police and Hospital security responded to the report.

Investigations are continuing.
