A BRICKLAYER in Mexico who built a secret tunnel between his home and that of his married lover was caught by her husband.
The episode unfolded in the neighbourhood of Villas del Prado in the northwestern town of Tijuana.
The married construction worker, named by local media as Alberto, reportedly built the passage to allow him to visit his neighbour lover Pamela.
The scheme had worked until one day Pamela’s husband arrived home early from his job as a security worker.
After becoming suspicious, he checked under the bed in his bedroom, but didn’t find anyone there.
He then spotted Alberto hiding behind a couch, but after moving the couch found he had disappeared.
The husband then found a hole in the floor that led to a concealed underground tunnel beneath his home.
He climbed into the passage to pursue Alberto, and after crawling along it found that it led to his home.
TUNNEL OF LOVE
Photos showed a stable-looking concrete tunnel around two feet in width.
Floor tiles can also be seen around the entrance.
After the husband emerged from the tunnel, Alberto reportedly pleaded with him not to disclose the affair to his own wife, who was asleep in the house at the time.
Regardless, the furious husband reportedly found Alberto’s wife and told her.
The two men then entered a fist fight, prompting somebody to phone the police.
After arriving at the scene, police escorted Alberto away to prevent any further violence.
