That is what we commonly call a slab leak. Some slab systems have tee's installed in the ground below. Most slab systems have individual loops running to manifolds in the wall with NO tee's underground. Preferred repair is to reroute the line that is leaking. That requires opening walls. Or jack hammer through the concrete and fix just the leak. You will need a leak detection service or experienced plumber to locate the line and manifolds in the wall and or the location of the leak. If you live in a condo or townhome with a common Home Owners Association they may take care of it for you. If it's a single family home then call you insurance company. They sometimes will cover the damage, even the demo required to get to the leak.
I cut the wall even more to discover that there were three pipes, and when I turned on the water supply to the boiler, the middle pipe vibrated and leaked at the bottom where it met the slab. Thus, I cut the pipe and used a Sharkbite end stop, and voila! No leak! Thank you Mr_David for all your help! Here's a brief video I made summarizing the problem and solution: YouTube
