Between a rock and a hard place - Miner Yonni Barrios





Probably the bravest of all the 33 trapped miners was Yonni Barrios the one who asked for both his wife and his mistress to greet him on reaching the surface. And as the day of the rescue finally approached, he asked for both of them to wait for him as he emerged from the borehole. ‘He is either very cheeky or very idiotic,’ said a source within the rescue team. ‘He didn’t seem worried at all.’ In the end he was greeted by his mistress, his wife choosing to stay away. She said she is not bitter but had a parting shot for her husband and the other miners. ‘This is historic but soon it will be over to the next thing. People move on – in a few years everyone will have forgotten about this. ‘They think they will all be millionaires overnight but it’s not like that. Only the skillful ones will make something from this.’ Another miner is said to have four women claiming his affections and perhaps soon-to-be-increased income – a wife he has not divorced, his current live-in girlfriend, a third woman who claims to have had his son and another who says she is having an affair with him. - MATHEUS SANCHEZ
