Brazilian Soldier Dies While Training in Peru

LIMA – An officer in the Brazilian army was killed Tuesday in southern Peru’s Ica region when he parachuted from an airplane during training, the Peruvian army said in a communique.

The victim, identified as Maj. Genaro Machado Bekenkamp, was in Peru on a training mission and died at 11:40 a.m. in the Pozo Santo sector at some 250 kilometers (155 miles) south of Lima, the statement said.

The Peruvian army gave no details about the circumstances nor about the cause of the accident.

The high command of the Peruvian army regretted what had happened and expressed its condolences to the Machado family and to Brazil. EFE
