A puzzled and heartbroken husband uncovered the hole near the sofa, which he followed all the way to Alberto's house.
A married bricklayer from Mexico fell for a woman who also happened married. The man, named by local media as Alberto took the phrase "love thy neighbor" a bit too seriously. Unable to stay separated from his lady love, he built an underground tunnel from his place to the home of the woman called Pamela in the Villas del Prado neighborhood in Tijuana, reports Daily Mail. The couple reportedly met when Pamela's husband Jorge was away at his security job. Unfortunately for them, Jorge returned home earlier than expected one fine day, and walked in on them together.
Jorge first checked for Alberto under the bed but eventually found him hiding behind the couch before he disappeared. A puzzled and heartbroken husband uncovered the hole near the sofa, which he followed all the way to Alberto's house. It was unclear as to how long the tunnel was. When Jorge reached Alberto's house, he pleaded with the man to leave because he didn't want his wife -who was sleeping at the time- to know about his affair.
However, an angry Jorge did spill the beans to Alberto's wife, and in true soap opera style, the two men had a fight. As per reports, police were called and took Alberto away in order to calm the situation down.
While the fact that the man dug a tunnel to get to the house of his married lover, it is not as weird as when a man dug a tunnel so he could spy on his ex. According to Metro, Cesar Arnoldo Gomez, 50 spent about a week digging a tunnel under the house of his former partner, Griselda Santillan, 58.
The couple had been together for 14 years and the man was having a hard time accepting the breakup. 58-year-old Santillan had heard unusual sounds coming from outside her home for about a week but she believed they were from some strays. Speaking to EI Universal, she said: "I asked a neighbour to look inside and they said there was nothing there, but then I noticed some shoes, tools and water. I shouted at him to get out, but he did not do anything."
Unfortunately for him, he got stuck in the tunnel for about 24 hours and had to be rescued by authorities. Unable to get out on his own, Red Cross had to come in, along with the fire rescue department to get out a very dehydrated Cesar from the tunnel. Initially he refused to leave the hospital but had no choice but be dragged out and taken to the hospital. In digging up a tunnel to his ex-partner's home, he was reportedly in breach of a restraining order prohibiting him from approaching Santillan.
