Gardner along with Borgart and Impyn (pictured), who were in for life, made a run for it. Gardner had wire cutters and ripped open the fence. Rifle fire from the prison guards began, Borgart and Impyn were shot. Chaos followed as more prisoners tried to escape and guards tried to prevent them.
Gardner told us those fellows couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn,
were Impyn’s last words. Borgart was dead too.
