Antigo presidente do Chile Sebastián Piñera morre em desastre de helicóptero

By Jordi Bou

February 7, 2024 - Sebastián Piñera, primeiro líder conservador do Chile após o fim do
regime militar em 1990, morreu aos 74 anos em desastre de helicóptero.

Piñera was piloting the helicopter when it crashed into Lake Ranco in the southern Chilean region of Los Ríos, where his family owns a summer home, according to local media. Three other passengers survived, including one of the former president’s family members.

Piñera was perhaps best known abroad for his role overseeing the spectacular rescue in 2010 of 33 miners who were trapped underneath the Atacama desert. The event became a global media sensation and was the subject of a 2014 movie, “The 33.”

In Chile, he was known as a successful businessman whose first term was boosted by rapid economic growth but who was often seen as out-of-touch with the country's fast-changing society.
