Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzman has been helicoptered out of New York City and is being transferred to the high security prison in Colorado where he will serve a life sentence.
The Mexican drug kingpin was spotted boarding a chopper at the Wall Street helipad in lower Manhattan at around 3am Friday as a number of heavily-armed guards and more than a dozen NYPD squad cars stood watch.

According to flight records obtained by DailyMail.com, the helicopter transported Guzman to Floyd Bennet Field in Brooklyn, where he was placed on a plane bound for the United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility in Florence, Colorado.
Commonly known as ADX, the fortress is the only federal super-maximum prison in the US.

Guzman's transfer was executed within hours of Guzman's being sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday as officials feared the drug lord could attempt yet another daring jail break.
US District Judge Brian Cogan initially agreed to a recommendation that Guzman should remain in federal jail in Manhattan for an additional two months to help his lawyers mount an appeal, but authorities opted to 'get him out of the city as soon as possible' in light of his past escapes, defense attorney Jeffrey Lichtman confirmed.
Guzman - ADX - Section - Range
Guzman is expected to be held in ADX's most isolated section, Range 13.
He will be barred from visits by his beauty queen wife, Emma Aispuro Colonel, and their seven-year-old twin daughters.
