Inside El Chapo’s secret Mexican prison escape tunnel (VIDEO)

Vice News traveled south of the border and dropped down the most famous underground tunnel in the world– that used by a Mexican drug lord to vacate the premises.

The figurehead of the Sinaloa cartel, drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, released himself on his own recognizance on July 11, via a tunnel from Mexico’s only maximum-security prison in Mexico.

It took him a year to arrange his self-parole and Vice went to Altiplano prison– where they found a different tale than what the local media have been reporting.

In short, a couple guys with a spoon didn’t pull this one off.
