WATCH: Dramatic Video Records Raid to Capture Escaped Cartel Boss ‘El Chapo’
El Chapo, whose real name Joaquín Guzmán Loera, was apprehended by Mexican authorities following a raid in the town of Los Mochis. The pre-dawn raid lasted only 15 minutes, but it was captured in part by a GoPro camera that was strapped to one of the Marines involved in the action. Please watch and share.
The video, obtained from Mexican authorities, looks as if it's from an action movie. The camera follows the armed men as they storm the house, unleash grenades and bullets, and search room to room.
The Friday raid was called "Operation Black Swan," according to the Mexican show "Primero Noticias." Authorities decided to launch the raid Thursday after they got a tip about where Guzman was sleeping, the show reported.
Seventeen elite unit Mexican Marines launched their assault on the house in the city of Los Mochis at 4:40 a.m., "Primero Noticias" said.
They were met by about one dozen well-armed guards inside who were prepared for a fight, the show said.
The Marines moved from room to room, clearing the house. Upstairs they found two men in one room and found two women on the floor of a bathroom. All were captured, "Primero Noticias" said.
After 15 minutes, the Marines controlled the entire house, according to "Primero Noticias."
