Three inmates broke out of an Ohio correctional facility after using a table to smash through a window and escape on foot.

Surveillance footage shows Joshua Natal-Morales, 26, Michael Kilgore, 23 and Reynaldo Franco, 26, contained in the Lorain/Medina Community Based Correctional Facility in Elyria, Ohio, on Friday night.

The inmates were sitting in a room together before they decided to pick up a table and break through a window, reports Daily Mail.

Lorain County Sheriff's Office apprehended all three inmates later that evening after they escaped on foot away from the facility.

The sheriff's office responded to a call from the facility at 6.47pm after the inmates broke through a glass window with a table.

The correctional facility houses felony-level prisoners as their "last chance" before ending up in prison.

Deputies set up a perimeter around the facility to help capture the escaped inmates.

The Elyria Police Department was also enlisted to help find the individuals before they got too far away.

Franco and Natal-Morales were caught by police at 7.45pm and Kilgore was captured 30 minutes after and brought back to the facility.

The correctional facility is now launching an investigation into the escape after the three inmates were able to smash a window.

New security measures may be imposed in the future to prevent future escapes.

The inmates now face charges of vandalism and escape.
