Authorities have released a video of on-the-run Mexican drug lord, Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman’s last moments in jail before escaping.
The video shows El Chapo bending over the shower, blocked by a small wall, and he escapes from there.
El Chapo allegedly passed through the hole to a mile-long tunnel, through which he escaped.
Mexican Interior Minister Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong said Guzman’s cell was videotaped 24 hours a day. But the surveillance system had two blind spots that Guzman exploited.
At least 49 people have been questioned in connection with the escape, a Mexican official said. And Mexico’s interior minister said Monday that he has fired the prison director and other prison officials.
It’s likely prison workers helped Guzman break out, the interior minister told reporters.
