PHOENIX - A 3TV Exclusive as 3TV's Mike Watkiss takes a look inside a notorious drug smuggling tunnel beneath the Arizona-Mexico border.

It's something many people have never seen, let alone traveled through

It's an experience reporter Mike Watkiss said he will not soon forget.

He crawled on his belly through a dark, narrow and claustrophobic tunnel, a tunnel designed to fairy narcotics into the United States.

Border patrol allowed Mike to go into the tunnel and experience what drug smugglers go through as they illegally traffic drugs underground into the United States.

Just as quick as it was discovered by agents, it was filled with concrete so it is no longer a viable tunnel for smugglers to use to travel underground across the border.
