The Great Escape


In Great Britain, Dennis Cramp wants his 88-year-old wife Maria to be able to spend her last days with him. The Lancashire County Council social services department stands in his way. Cramp had been told his wife could come home from a nursing home, where she'd spent the past three months. But at the last minute, officials changed their minds. So Cramp went to the nursing home, brought his wife out in a wheelchair and took her home. But within hours the council had a court order giving it legal custody of Mrs. Cramp for six months and took her back to the nursing home. Mr. Cramp was told that if tries to take her home again, he'll be arrested.
