Death toll from an Argentine lab explosion rose to three on Wednesday, after a man died of wounds he sustained in last week's blast in Cordoba province, a hospital official said.

Carlos Ravera, 60, had suffered burns in 65 percent of his body and severe damages to his respiratory system, Cordoba Hospital director Carlos Simon said.

Ravera was a professor at Rio Cuarto National University, 650 km northwest of Buenos Aires, where an explosion caused a fire and a post-explosion in the engineering faculty lab on Dec. 5 when students and professors were using high-explosive inflammable substances.

The other two victims were student Juan Politano, 22, and professor and researcher Liliana Giacomelli. Another 24 people were injured, six of them seriously, with three victims classified as high risk patients.

"All of them are still in danger, they are patients that can become complicated at any time," Simon said.
