Chance's interest in escapes offically began when he approached the local general hospital and asked whether or not they kept strait jackets there.
He was directed to the underground storage area, where an Orderly, curious that a 13 year old boy would be willing to wear one, strapped Chance into his first ever strait jacket escape attempt.
Chance was out in less than 2 minutes.
Suitably impressed, the Orderly neatly folded the jacket and stuffed it into a paper bag and gave it to Chance as an unexpected gift.
That was almost exactly 30 years ago !
"The rest" as they say "is history"
