AWESOME! Old couple use knowledge of Morse code to escape Tennessee nursing home
Staff were unable to explain how the couple managed to escape the facility, which is secured behind a locked door with an electronic keypad. 

Upon being questioned, the man explained how he had 'previously worked with Morse code in the military', according to an investigation by the health care facilities licensing board.

He used his experience to listen to staff as they punched the PIN combination into the door to make their escape according to Tennessee Department of Health documents seen by The Tennessean.

Reminds me of another story where an elderly couple escaped...


Rear View Mirror: The True Story Behind Fastball's "The Way"

...In 1998, when Fastball released their smash hit song "The Way", most people heard the romantic tale of eternal youth and an endless road trip, but listen to the story behind the song… and I promise, you'll never hear it the same way again.

We begin in 1986. Salado, Texas. Lela and Raymond are strangers. They're both grandparents, both in their 70s. Both of them lose their spouses. And they each resign to spending their golden years alone. That is — until they meet each other.

Lela and Raymond fall madly in love and get married. They share everything. Their last name, their families, their love of music.

Every summer, Lela and Raymond pack up the Oldsmobile and drive 15 miles from Salado to Temple, Texas, for their favourite fiddling festival.

And in June of 1997, that's exactly what they set out to do. It's tradition. Even though Raymond was 88 and recently had a stroke, and Lela is 83 and starting to show signs of dementia, that day they hit the road to the festival like a couple of crazy teenage lovebirds.

Days later, in another part of Texas, Tony Scalzo — the bass player for the band Fastball — sits down at the breakfast table with a cup of coffee and a newspaper and reads the headline: "Elderly Salado couple missing on a trip to nowhere." Lela and Raymond Howard set out for a fiddling festival, and didn't come back. Their kids are worried. The search parties are out.

A few days later, Tony reads another headline: "Family still mystified by disappearance."

Tony becomes obsessed with the story. Who were these people? And where were they going without ever knowing the way?

Tony writes a song about Lela and Raymond. And it isn't until after Tony plays that song for his band Fastball and they decide to record it, that he reads the final newspaper headline: "Elderly couple found dead in car two weeks after trip to festival."

Lela and Raymond Howard's bodies were discovered in that Oldsmobile, at the bottom of a canyon, hundreds of miles away from where they meant to go.

And the next year, 1998, when their children and their grandchildren got in the car, flicked on the radio, you can only imagine how they felt to hear their family story immortalized, romanticized in this song by Fastball: "The Way"...

Why should you have to escape? Isn’t it illegal for them to keep you against your will even of you have dementia?

Apparently not, pretty disgusting how they treat the elderly.
