SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — A player from a third-tier club in Chile died of a heart attack during a friendly match against top-flight team Deportivo Palestino on Wednesday.

Carlos Barra, a 23-year-old representing Deportes Maipo Quilicura, fell to the turf while experiencing cardiac arrest.

His teammate Francisco Illanes said medical staff at the game worked for 20 minutes to revive him, performing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, and once parademics arrived, they tried for a further 40 minutes, but without success.

Teammates said Barra had been on trial with the club for a month after graduating from university with a physical education degree.
