How is your soldier death calculated?

How is your soldier death calculated?

To be precise, can soldiers die even when they still have hitpionts left if the aliens hit them hard enough? I'm NOT asking about someone iying from bleed damage, nor your last conscious soldier being mindcontrolled, nor them being turned into a Zombie.

I have noticed often when an enemy kills one of your guys, you see in a flash thier hitpionts and morale decrease but not to zero, and yet they die. To use a d&d reference, its like they failed thier saving throw. Once in a great while someone survives losing 80% of thier health. Do those few make thier saving throw?

Curious to see what better players than I say.

There's no saving throw.
It's more likely that the bottom UI (with morale and hp) is "targetting" a different soldier than the one you see dying.
