Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, the notorious drug lord wanted in both Mexico and the U.S., escaped from a maximum-security prison through a small hole in found in his shower—and now there's video of the moments before he slips into the mile-long tunnel that had been built just for him. Guzman can be seen pacing back and forth in his cell for the better part of a minute, and repeatedly glancing at the shower area. You can't see the hole directly, but at one point, he kneels down and it looks like he's gone—before he pops back up and walks over to his bed and pauses for a few more seconds. And then he gets back up one more time and is really gone. 

Watch the newly released video above.
