Question: what will you do if you came home one day to find a secret underground tunnel from under your bed to the house of the man your wife is cheating on you with?
Like a scene from any popular Mexican telenovela, Antonio, a bricklayer from Villas del Prado 1, Mexico dug an underground tunnel to the bedroom of his lover Pamela. Both lovers are married.
Antonio was having an affair with Pamela, a married woman from the town’s Tijuana neighborhood. To avoid detection, he dug a durable underground tunnel that crossed several streets from his home to that of his lover’s.
He always went through the tunnel to meet Pamela secretly, anytime her husband Jorge left for work. Until one day Jorge came home unexpectedly whiles they were having sex.
The bricklayer tried to hide from the furious husband, crawled under the bed and disappeared into the “love tunnel.” Jorge started looking for him all over the house, and luckily found the tunnel entrance from under his marital bed.
The scorned husband crawled into the secret tunnel himself and ended up in Antonio’s house, where the desperate bricklayer begged him to keep quiet because his wife was in the next room and he didn’t want her to find out about his extramarital escapade. That enraged Jorge even more, and the two men got into a fist fight.
Seeing a strange man beating on her husband in his own home, the shocked wife called the police, and Antonio had no choice but to confess his unfaithfulness.
News and photos of the “love tunnel” were leaked on Mexican social media last week and quickly went viral.
The story was covered by national and international news outlets, with Antonio drawing comparisons with drug kingpin El Chapo.
Mexico is famous for its network of secret underground tunnels used by drug cartels to transport their precious but illegal cargos, but it seems the technique is sometimes also used for keeping romantic affairs secret.
