He suffered a heart attack in his bed during the night and could not be saved by paramedics.
Only three months after his son's death. What a tragedy.
Emiliano died in a plane crash aged just 28 in January when his light aircraft crashed in the English channel.
He was confirmed dead after his body was pulled from the plane crash wreckage.
At the time of Sala's death, his father said the ordeal was like a nightmare.
"I cannot believe it. This is a dream. A bad dream. I am desperate," he said.
"I communicated with them every day, but since I do not have WhatsApp it's hard to call them or call me.
"They told me that the days passed and there was no news of Emiliano or the plane."
