(NEWSER) – How did notorious Mexican drug boss Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman nearly evade capture during a raid last week? By secret tunnel, of course—this time using a doorway tucked behind a mirror in a dressing room,Reuters reports. The news-watching public got full view of the raid and the hidden tunnel thanks to video shot during the raid by Mexican marines.

Aired Monday by Televisa, the GoPro footage shows marines exchanging gunfire with 15 henchmen armed with rocket launchers and machine guns inside the house in Los Mochis. Bullet holes and blood are seen on white walls in the house, where marines also found a sofa covered with condoms, antibiotics, syringes, and injectable testosterone in Guzman's bedroom. (See the video on ABC News, but be warned, it's violent.)
