MEXICO CITY – Officials in northern Mexico say that a man accidentally caught himself in a hole he had dug so he could spy on his former boyfriend in violation of a detention order.
The lawyer's general office of the state of Sonora said Sunday that the 50-year-old spent days digging the hole in Puerto Penasco, in California, only to be trapped inside and demanding help to get out. The man had been ordered to stay away from his ex-boyfriend because of domestic violence. He is now in prison.
Violence against women is in Mexico's spotlight this week after a woman was hit by a car and hit the death of her husband outside the governor's residence in the western state of Jalisco. This incident was captured on video.
