A Brazilian prisoner’s escape was foiled when his plump belly got unexpectedly stuck as he attempted to make his getaway through a hole in the wall.

The tattooed inmate was trying to break out of a prison in Ceres, near Goiania, when he became jammed.

Moments earlier, a smaller convict had jumped through a hole smashed through the side of the prison wall before his overweight partner in crime attempted to follow.

The bald convict was left reeling in agony after becoming trapped as prisoners inside the jail attempted to push him to freedom.
