Escape From El Altiplano - 21 July 2015
Reuters Photographer Edgard Garrido: "After photographing Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman when recaptured last year, “El Chapo”, or "Shorty", escaped again earlier this month, this time through a tunnel from the high-security prison El Altiplano. It was only after waiting more than two days that the authorities let us see the tunnel’s exit in a warehouse. Two metres down was a basement with buckets, ropes, dug earth and a pulley above the tunnel exit. I had five minutes to take photos. Next day I was able to go into the tunnel, I went down to the basement area and started to clamber down a rickety ladder about 8 metres long. The darkness was intense and I couldn’t see my feet. Air was in short supply. At the bottom I looked for details of the adapted motorbike which allowed “El Chapo” to make a speedy escape through the tunnel. After a while we also got access to his prison cell. Security was extremely tight. After 10 minutes walking through a maze of staircases and corridors, we arrived. Two minutes for photos: his unmade bed, a desk. A cement wall divided the cell from the shower, his point of escape. I saw the security camera in a corner of the cell and tried to figure out the two blind spots mentioned by the authorities. With Guzman still on the run, those blind spots could tell quite a story."
