The soldier had been found unconscious in his room and was taken to a local hospital, where he died. The causes of death are being investigated.
The deceased second lieutenant was identified as Matías Ezequiel Chirino, a native of the city of Río Cuarto, province of Córdoba, who had been transferred a few days ago to the Artillery Group No. 3 of Paso de los Libres.
As they explained to Infobae from the Corrientes Public Prosecutor's Office, it was 5 o'clock on Sunday when a duty officer was alerted in the Officers' Casino by two Chirino colleagues, who warned him that the second lieutenant was unconscious in the room.
The duty officer went to the room and found that the second lieutenant's body was cold and his vital signs were very weak. Given this, he notified a superior of the Artillery Group, who ordered the transfer of the young man to the San José hospital. Once in that health center, and despite the tasks of the doctors from the guard service, the Cordovan soldier died.
By order of prosecutor Mauro Casco, head of the Paso de Los Libres UFI, an autopsy was carried out this Monday to determine the causes of Chirino's death.
