(AP) A player from a third-division Argentine soccer club has died of a heart attack during a match.


Club Deportivo Laferrere says Hector Sanabria collapsed in the 29th minute of a game against General Lamadrid on Tuesday a day before his 28th birthday.


Doctors attended to Sanabria on the field but he was dead by the time he reached a hospital.


Referee Hernan Mastrangelo, who suspended the match, told the Telam state news agency that Sanabria was not near other players when he collapsed and it did not appear he was involved in any earlier incident that could have contributed to the heart failure.


The Argentine Football Federation says all weekend matches will be preceded by a minute of silence in Sanabria's honor.
