Now we know … Chilean Miner Yonni Barrios Met by Mistress
At the link, there’s video of the reunion with the mistress.
Chilean miner Yonni Barrios emerged this afternoon from the underground shaft where he had been trapped for months and straight into the arms of his mistress, not those of his wife of 28 years.
His wife had said she would not attend his rescue after discovering that Barrios had been cheating on her with a lover for years.
When Barrios stepped out of the mineshaft, Susana Valenzuela was there to greet him emotionally, kissing him and hugging him while she sobbed. Barrios stood stoically but did not appear to be overly affectionate in return.
Barrios’ wife, 56-year-old Marta Salinas, had said earlier that she would not attend his rescue after discovering that he had been seeing Valenzuela on the sly for years.
The story goes on to say that he requested that his wife AND his mistress be at the mine to greet him when he was brought up - but his wife declined.
