Mexican Drug Lord Escapes From Maximum Security Prison


Guzman During His Last Arrest, in 2014

Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman escaped from Altiplano Prison, the second time he has escaped from a maximum security prison.  Guzman, who is known as “Mexico’s Osama bin Laden” fled through an elaborate tunnel system before leaving the area on a motorbike.  Eighteen guards are being questioned at the prison, located 50 miles outside of Mexico City.

Guzman’s elaborate tunnels included electric lights, oxygen tanks, air vents, and the motorbike he escaped on.  A half-built house is believed to be at the end of the tunnel, which is where Guzman likely surfaced before fleeing the area.
