Drug kingpin Joachin “El Chapo” Guzman escaped from one of Mexico’s most secure prisons Saturday night. Just how did he do it?
Authorities found a hole in the shower area of the druglord’s cell where he likely slipped through and dropped down 30 feet to a tunnel. The 5’6″ tall tunnel was ventilated, had lighting, and even had a motorcycle that was modified to run on rails. At the end of the mile-long tunnel is a half-built structure located in a farm field. It is here that Guzman is thought to have emerged to freedom.
It seems like a lot of work, but it may not be for nothing– the last time Guzman escaped, he wasn’t captured for another 13 years.
