Mexican man’s Tunnel of Love busted
The construction worker from Mexico, who was named by local media as Alberto, dug the passageway allowing him to see a woman called Pamela in the Villas del Prado neighbourhood in Tijuana.
The couple would meet up while her husband, Jorge, was working at his security job.
Jorge discovered the passageway after he arrived home from work earlier than usual and caught her and Alberto the bricklayer in the act.
After checking for Alberto under the bed, Jorge eventually found him hiding behind the couch but before he could confront him Alberto suddenly disappeared.
Jorge then uncovered the hole near the sofa, which he followed all the way to Alberto's house.
After emerging at the other end, Alberto pleaded with the cheated husband to leave so his wife, who was sleeping, didn't find out what was going on.
However, an angry Jorge spilled the news about their spouses' affair, and the men got into a fist fight.
Cops responding to the brawl took Alberto away to prevent the confrontation from escalating further.
Local media did not report how long the tunnel was, but pictures of the entrance appear to show the bricklayer had done a professional-looking job.
Another Mexican man previously had to be rescued from a tunnel he'd made to keep an eye on an old partner. The 50-year-old had been in a relationship for 14 years and was clearly finding it difficult getting over her.
