Transcript for Instant Index: Bank Robbers' Dangerous Escape From Prison
and our "instant index" tonight begins with a dangerous escape from prison. Look closely at this picture. Bed sheets tied together and used as a kind of rope by two convicted bank robbers, breaking out of a correctional facility in chicago. They even fashioned a makeshift hairness, which worked, though one inmate weighed nearly 200 pounds. They managed to lower themselves down 17 stories, then run. Tonight, a manhunt under way, as officials say they are considered armed and dangerous. And, also in the index, "time" magazine's person of the year is president obama. They called him the architect of a new america, showing candid images of the president, pretending to be caught by a tiny superhero at the white house. And, also watching his daughter sasha rehearse for "the nutcracker" while writing a speech. The president now joins an elite group of double winners. Churchhill, roosevelt and george w. Bush. And we also want to hear what captures your imagination every day. So, tweet me your thoughts for the "instant index, index," @dianesawyer. And, a program note.
