A video released by the Mexican government on Tuesday has gained a lot of interest on the Internet after it allegedly showed fugitive drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman disappearing from a maximum-security prison in the country.
In the clip, Guzman is seen going into his prison cell’s shower and bending down behind a short dividing wall before disappearing. However, the small hole on the shower floor that the 58-year-old used to disappear in a daring escape on Saturday is not shown in the video.
Interestingly, a surveillance camera had been placed on the corner of the cell outside and another inside pointing towards the shower but the authorities said that there were two blind spots.
This is the drug lord’s second escape from a maximum-security prison in 14 years and comes as a huge embarrassment to President Enrique Pena Nieto, whose administration celebrated the capture of one of the world’s most wanted drug kings just 17 months ago.
