A man in the custody of sheriff's deputies escaped when he was taken to a local hospital for treatment of breathing problems, authorities said. Joe Hernandez Ambriz, 38, managed to unstrap himself from a gurney at Antelope Valley Hospital Medical Center and walk out an unguarded door, Deputy Carl Deeley said. Ambriz, who was on parole for a burglary conviction, had been arrested on suspicion of receiving stolen property and booked into the Antelope Valley sheriff's station. While in custody, Ambris had complained of breathing problems and was taken to the hospital.
