Love is a very powerful emotion that can make even sane people do the most ridiculous things.

According to reports from Mexico News Daily, a 50-year-old man, César Arnoldo Gómez, was trapped in a tunnel he dug himself to spy on his ex-wife.

It was gathered that Gomez’s ex-wife, Griselda Santillán, 58, started to hear strange noises at the back of her house and she went out with a neighbour to investigate.

Their investigation discovered a tunnel opening, knives and bottles of water. More shocking was the fact that Gomez was also found stuck in the tunnel.
