Mistresses and wives clash over trapped Chilean miners
Tensions are rising above ground as wives and mistresses of the 33 miners trapped deep within the San Jose mine make rival claims for compensation.
Authorities at Camp Hope have had to deal with a rush of women coming forward claiming to be first in the Chilean miners’ affections in order to receive government handouts.
At least five wives have been forced to come face to face with mistresses whose existence was kept from them by their husbands, who have been trapped more than 2,300ft below since a cave in on August 5.
I gotta say, I’d be one ticked off wife! I probably would have left the camp, gone home to pack his bags and sit them on the front door step.
