This newspaper was able to confirm from judicial sources that the minor died after decompensation. Witnesses added to EL DIA that it occurred in a 5-a-side soccer field, with the company name “Bahía 37”, where a small school for this sport also operates. Although it could not be determined if the victim was a student or was there occasionally, since he was a “spectator”, the police report indicates.
