This is the shocking moment a naked man squeezed his way through a prison cell window.
The bizarre CCTV clip, which was filmed in Dagestan, Russia, shows the lean suspect pushing his way through the tiny hole at around 4.30am on Saturday.
For two minutes of the footage, the escapee appears to have his hips wedged in the slot, unable to break free.
However the clip, which emerged online on Sunday, soon shows the man sliding out of the gap and on to the floor.

Ready to make a run for it, the slippery suspect leans back through the observation window and grabs his clothing and shoes.
