Video reveals the incredible tunnel that El Chapo used to escape prison

The story of Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman, head of the Sinaloa Cartel, escaping jail is just insane. A mile long, ventilated and lit tunnel was built right under his shower in his prison cell to allow him to escape. Not only that, there was a little motorbike cart inside the tunnel as well to presumably give him a joy ride to freedom. Here is Gawker’s video showing just what the tunnel looked like.

Oh so he didn’t escape, he was handed the keys to the back door. How do people not know there is a tunnel being built? This really is like the movies.
