A fugitive on the run has been found hiding in a 50cm-wide drainage pipe close to the hospital he escaped from six days earlier.
David Watson, 28, was captured near the Clifton T. Perkins Hospital Centre - Maryland's maximum-security psychiatric hospital - on Wednesday afternoon (local time).
He escaped after pushing a guard over as he was being brought in from a van.
Watson is serving a 100-year sentence for attempted murder.
Police had called off the search four days earlier, thinking he was no longer in the area, until a person reported seeing a man dressed in a hard hat and safety vest running into the woods nearby.
After finding footprints leading to a drainage tunnel, officers used night vision equipment to find the escapee.
Howard County Police Chief Gary Gardner told The Washington Post Watson was lying "face front" in the pipe, but only suffered a few minor scrapes.
Authorities say after talking to Watson they realised he wasn't getting very far anyway. He'd been running back and forth within a 2 kilometre radius from the Perkins facility since his escape.
