    Hossein Nayeri, 37, Jonathan Tieu, 20, and Bac Duong, 43, are shown in undated mugshots.

    A video obtained by NBC4 shows the first-person vantage point, taken on a contraband cellphone, of the escape of three men last year from a maximum-security wing at an Orange County, California, jail and scenes from their days on the run.

    The trio, along with a cab driver pressed into transporting them, evaded a statewide manhunt for more than a week before two were captured in San Francisco. The third had turned himself in to police.
