Former Chilean President Sebastian Pinera, 74, died in a helicopter crash in Lago Ranco, southern Chile, on Tuesday. Interior Minister Carolina Toha confirmed the death of the ex-president, who served from 2010 to 2014 and again from 2018 to 2022.

The helicopter crash left three other passengers alive.
