According to iBerkshires.com an inmate from Berkshire County House of Corrections has escaped custody while being treated at Berkshire Medical Center.
Sheriff Thomas Bowler said that 33 year old Harry Chandler was being treated at BMC this afternoon for an infection in his hands when he escaped from custody wearing only orange inmate pants, no shirt and no shoes at approximately 2:07 this afternoon.
He's more of an immediate danger to himself than I think to the public... He's in a bad way, he has a severe addiction...But obviously, we're concerned because he's at bay, he overpowered one of our officers at the hospital and was able to get freeSheriff Thomas Bowler via iBerkshires
