According to a report on CNN, the pursuit came after Mexican Marines and other special forces spotted the Sinaloa cartel chief on October 9th near the town of Cosala, in the mountains of Mexico’s Sinaloa state, the official said. At the time, he was with a girl, and authorities were reluctant to move in.
Later, when they spotted him without the child, the official said, the Special Forces pursued Guzman on foot.
The statement added that as they closed in, Guzman fell off a cliff. His bodyguards rushed to the bottom of the cliff, carried Guzman away and were able to escape in the dense forest once more.
