In 2007, several people broke out of New York City police precinct houses by jumping through windows. In at least two instances, people who had been brought in for questioning or were under arrest leapt from windows at station houses in Queens and Brooklyn. A third escapee that year — a man arrested on drug charges and being treated at Long Island College Hospital in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn — did not bother opening a window to make his getaway. He crashed through a plate-glass window and fled. He was captured two hours later.
