Airplane Carrying Brazilian Soccer Team Crashes in Colombia
A plane carrying first division Brazilian soccer team Chapecoense, as well as journalists and crew members crashed in Medellín, Colombia on Monday (November 28).
The plane was carrying 81 people and 75 or 76 are believed to have died, CBS News reports. Reports are suggesting that three Chapecoence players, two plane crew members and one journalist survived the crash. The plane apparently went down at around 10pm, and heavy rainfall in the area made the search difficult.
The team was scheduled to play at the Copa Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional of Medellin on Wednesday after having a successful soccer season.
Our thoughts are with the organization, the families and loved ones affected by this terrible tragedy.
