QUESTION 10
TERRY ROCKEFELLER:

And what happened to their attempt?

MICHAEL SMITH:

I was located at the rear of the prison so I had to go through the whole complex including a central, ah, inner section in the prison called Times Square. And Times Square divides the, ah, four recreation yards in the prison which is centrally located. We made it through the housing area in the rear of the prison and to Times Square successfully. But when, on reaching Times Square, there were, ah, militant group of inmates that directed the two inmates that were helping me out, that all hostages had to be taken to D Yard where I was transported to.
