Escaping the boss east
You can't fight Mendez at this point. Turn 180 degrees and start running. Also, make sure Ashley is given instructions to follow Leon closely.
Choose TMP or the shotgun from the inventory - it must be a good weapon for quickly stopping villagers you encounter. Fire at the enemies to make them temporarily stunned or fall to the ground. Don't let Ashley get hurt or caught, as her rescue will let Mendez to easily get closer. If that happens, it is best to restart the escape sequence.
When you reach the place shown in the picture, wait until the villagers approach the red barrel. Its explosion can knock down or kill several enemies.
The rope bridge that Leon and Ashley will reach will get destroyed. Turn left and take the path that goes by the cliff.
After a while, the game will play a cut-scene. The heroes successfully jump to the other side of the chasm and escape Mendez.
However, a regular boss fight with Mendez will happen later in the game. We described the boss fight in the Slaughterhouse in the Bosses chapter, on the Mendez page.
