Petty officer dies in explosion in Arctic military base
The ministry of Defence informed that a non-commissioned officer who served in the Arctic base of Base Esperanza died, after what seems to be an accident as a result of the manipulation of "flammable residuals."
Télam news agency informed that the Federal tribunal of Ushuaia will lead the investigation under the authority of Federal Judge Vilota Ivandic.
The Base Esperanza military base was founded in 1952, it is one of the six dependencies which Argentina posses in that region and the only settlement used by civilian personnel.
