it's what you do. there is new video tonight of perhaps the greatest prison break in modern times. notorious drug kingpin el chapo joaquin g of the -- guzman. under his cell. the new video shows guzman turning up the sound on his tv before loud jack hammers heard in the background i was his men chiseling away through the floor of his shower. none of the guard paid any attention. minutes later, guzman was gone. bill whitaker took a look at the escape for "60 minutes." >> gets arrested for the second time. knowing he escaped once before. goes to prison and is able to escape a second time.
that's something like, no other criminal in history you will be able to find. >> reporter: until he retired last year, jim dinkins was head of homeland security investigations. part of the international manhunt for el chapo more than a decade. >> he was literally in a well-fortified, constructed prison, designed to prevent such an escape. >> maximum security prison in mexico. >> designed to penetrate people from coming frumg air or land. they didn't anticipate underground. >> reporter: that's exactly what he did. almost from the moment he was delivered here to altiplano prison in february, 2014. a construction crew from his cartel began digging a tunnel to free him. the wall here are as much as 3 feet thick. the airspace above is restricted. cell phones, prison officials say they're jammed for miles around. but none of that made a difference. from all most a mile away,
cinder block structure in a farmer's field, chapo's men dug down three stories. and then they burrowed 4,921 feet straight toward altiplano. a massive construction project have masked the is not of the underground activity. the tunnel went under the prison wall and beneath the plumbing and with pinpoint accuracy, it emerged directly into the shower stall of guzman's ground level cell. >> very difficult to navigate underground. point a to point b with minor deviations if any. and that is an engineering marvel. >> how difficult? >> very, very difficult. when the boss is behind prison. put your best team and foot forward. they did. >> at 8:52, saturday july 11th. he ducks into a shower cell
the only place hidden from security cameras. and then he disappears. he climbed down into the tunnel, and climbed atop ape motorcycle. especially rigged on rail tracks to speed him to freedom. by the time the alarm sounded and a search began, guzman had vanished into the night. when mexican agents located the cinder block structure where the escape tunnel began. the construction crew was also long gone. leaving behind tools. jen rater, oxygen tanks. jig saw and car batteries. >> what was your reaction when you heard el chappo escaped? >> disappointed not shocked. >> chuck rosen becker is head of the u.s. drug enforcement administration. >> he was in a maximum security prison? >> escaped previously in 2001. it had happened before. we knew, we knew, he had
intended to dupe it again. >> you knew he was planning to do it again? >> we knew he and his folks wanted to break him out we had general chatter, a year before he broke out a second time. what they hoped to do. there was nothing in that information we had. about tunnels. >> he is a notorious tunnel manufacturer. >> tunnel king. >> the tunnel king. >> he is responsible for more sophisticated tunnels. any body in the history of drug trafficking in mexico. some what ironic he was able to escape using one of the techniques he perfected over the last decade plus. >> reporter: ironic, but not terribly surprising. during the last manhunt for el chapo, pursuers discovered this. >> the tub.
>> tunnel entrance in the plumbing. in this case beneath the tub. >> that's amazing. >> reporter: chapo devised smuggling methods. he packed drugs into fake cucumbers and bananas and mixed them with real shipments of produce. the thing he worked hardest on was making sure he could always get away. guzman was the first mexican drug trafficker to hierarch tekts and mining engineers to build elaborate super tunnels. complete with vent lax system. electricity and railways to ferry drugs under the u.s./mexico border. mexican authorities led us to a tunnel they found unfinished and just short of the border fence in tijuana. this tunnel was discovered just
a couple weeks after the great escape. his cartel wasn't just focused on building his escape tunnel. continued building the drug tunnels at the same time. the border between san diego and tijuana is one of the busiest international commercial jones in the world. you've will see ate staetd streams passing north and south. what you can't see is that beneath one four mile stretch of this border it is crisscrossed with dozens of smuggling tunnels. why? because this industrial part of tijuana is across the fence of acres of warehouses in the u.s. drug smugglers, dig down in a building over here. pop up in a warehouse inthe u.s. couple of hundred yard away. this is where el chapo's cartel, honed its tunnelling technique. >> when did el chapo first start digging tunnels here in the area. on record the first tunnel in 2010. >> gentlemen dimigglio., chief of the san diego task forcing, made up of agents from homeland security. border patrol. and dea. the task force was established
threat to national security. >> down this road, there has been multiple tunnels found in warehouses here. >> how far is this? >> 1,400 feet. >> most tunnels are twice that length. >> what makes the area so appealing to them? >> just the infrastructure on beth side of the border. you know, and, in tijuana. you have all the commercial businesses there. import. export. just the warehouses there doing legitimate business. it is easy to conceal an illegitimate business within the warehouses. like looking for a needle in a hey stack. >> how much does it cost them off to build one of the tunnels? >> estimate the it costs the cartel $1 million to $2 million. if they have one successful push through of narcotics they paid for the tunnel and then some. >> one load gets through.
not just one kilo. talking tons of narcotics going through. >> led of marijuana for example could be worth as much as $5 million to $6 million. smugglers use the tunnels to move ware na, because it is too to transport over land. >> the team took us down into one of el chapo's closed subterranean passage ways. dug through the clay-like soil >> you can see bill's full
we've always had a lot of fun, but i wanted to try something new. and i'm into that. so we're using k-y love. it's a pleasure gel that magnifies both of our sensations. right, i mean, for both of us, just... yeah, it just takes all those awesome feelings you usually feel and it just makes them... rawr...
