Cheating Chile miner, Yonni Barrios, didn’t want to be saved, according to a guest on Good Day Philadelphia on WTXF. Barrios wanted to remain in the mine and not face his wife and mistress, but changed his mind 20 days after that initial decision.
FOX News’ FOX and Friends had footage of a man who helped drill the hole to rescue the Chilean miners. Jeff Roten joined “Good Day Philadelphia” to describe the incident before the rescue ever took place. Roten’s elaborated more on why Yonni Barrios wanted to remain underground in a deep, dark hole because he actually feared his wife and mistress.
“When I first arrived they said ‘we have 32 men’ and I couldn’t figure out for the for longest time… I thought there were 33,” Jeff Roten said. “I finally started talking to people and here was one man down there that has a mistress and a wife. He wanted to stay down in the hole, that he decided he was better off down there. After about 20 days I guess the guy finally decided to change his mind and come on out.”
Since the news broke that Yonni Barrios had a wife and a mistress, it seems he would have been safer in that mine in Chile! Is he wishing he agreed to stay behind when the rest of the miners were rescued?
Since the miner was rescued, his life has been on huge scandal involving not one, but two mistresses. His wife is staying out of the spotlight during the humilating headlines. While Yonni Barrios’ wife was glad he was fine after the mine rescue, she refuses to talk with him unless he reaches out.
