ONE of the trapped Chilean miners is dreading his rescue - his wife has discovered his secret mistress.
Yonni Barrios' wife Marta Salinas and lover Susana Valenzuela were both holding vigils for him

Marta was stunned when she heard Susana shouting his name amid a crowd of miners' loved ones.

Marta, 56, is said to be "horrified" - but is determined not to give up her man to her love rival.

She told friends: "Barrios is my husband. He loves me and I am his devoted wife. This woman has no legitimacy." But Susana said the 50-year-old miner, who she met on a training course five years ago, has been planning to leave his wife for her.

She said: "We are in love. I'll wait for him."

Barrios has been one of the heroes of the landslide drama - using his first-aid training to treat sick colleagues.

He has also vaccinated all 33 men, including himself, against flu and pneumonia. Meanwhile, the captives have been hit with a booze and tobacco ban by Nasa experts helping the rescue.

The space agency's doc James Michael Duncan said: "We need to get their nutrition up before we consider drinking." Two of the smokers have been dropped nicotine patches and gum to deal with their cravings.

But the miners - who may not be drilled out until Christmas - have started eating proper meals of 2,000 calories a day.

Their rations include yoghurt and cereal for breakfast, chicken sandwiches for lunch and jam sarnies for dinner. They each have tea and five litres of water daily.

And yesterday the stranded men had their first hot meal in a month, shredded beef and rice. But they were denied the traditional side dish of beans - to stop them getting wind.
