A man from northern Mexico was rescued after he was trapped in a home that was dug up to spy on his ex-girlfriend.
According to The Star, the 50-year-old man spent days digging up the hole in Puerto Penasco. However, he became trapped in the hole after he finished and was apparently stuck for a week. When police arrived at the scene, it was discovered that the man’s ex-girlfriend filed a restraining order against him and he violated the court order. The woman told police at first that she heard scratching noises but assumed cats were hanging out near her home.
She added that she looked around the property when the noises became louder and saw her ex-boyfriend of 14 years inside of the hole.
