MOSCOW, November 29. /TASS/. At least 76 people were killed and only six others survived when a plane carrying 81 people, including Brazil’s football team, crashed in Colombia, the 360 Radio Colombia wrote on Twitter on Tuesday, citing police in Medellin.
The search and rescue effort has been suspended as there are no more survivors in the area, the police said.
The plane, heading from Bolivia and operated by Bolivian charter airline Lamia, crashed in El Gordo near La Union, in Colombia’s Antioquia. A total of 72 passengers and 9 crew members were onboard the plane.
The Chapecoense team, from Chapeco in Brazil’s Santa Catarina, was traveling to Colombia’s Medellin to play against the local Atletico National club on November 30 as part of the South American Cup finals. Brazil’s Chapecoense are ranked ninth in the Brazilian competition.
At least two members of the team - defender Alan Ruschel and goalkeeper Danilo - and an air hostess are among the survivors, Colombia’s RCN radio reported earlier.
The South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) suspended all activities, including the matches of the South American Cup finals, following the crash. "The South American Football Confederation confirms that it has been notified by Colombian authorities that the plane on which the Atletico Chapecoense of Brazil delegation suffered an accident on its arrival to Colombia," an official statement said.
Representatives of administration at the Medellin airport said that shortly before the contact was lost the crew had reported about an emergency situation due to "malfunction of electrical equipment."
Brazil’s SporTV television reported that nine members did not fly to Colombia’s Medellin with the rest of the Chapecoense team, escaping the tragedy.
