The Mexican government has released footage of drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman escaping his cell. He appears to be in no particular hurry:

The security camera in Guzmán’s cell didn’t cover his toilet or shower for what Mexico’s interior minister described as “human rights reasons.” A two-by-two-foot hole connected to a tunnel was found in the floor of the cell’s shower after Guzmán went missing; the other end of the tunnel was in a house under construction in the area of the prison, which is about 50 miles west of Mexico City.
