Plane Carrying Brazilian Football Team Crashes in Colombia

A chartered aircraft with 81 people on board, including a Brazilian first division soccer team heading to Colombia for a regional tournament final, has crashed on its way to Medellin's international airport.

Aviation authorities said there are reports of at least six survivors.

"It's a tragedy of huge proportions," Medellin Mayor Federico Gutierrez told Blu Radio on his way to the site in a mountainous area outside the city where aircraft crashed.

Aviation authorities said the British Aerospace 146 short-haul plane, operated by a Bolivian charter airline named Lamia, declared an emergency at 10 pm Monday (0300 GMT) due to an electrical failure.

Authorities and rescuers were immediately activated but an air force helicopter had to turn back because of low visibility.

They urged journalists to stay away from the hard-to-access zone and stay off the roads to facilitate the entry of ambulances and rescuers. The area has been hit by heavy rains in recent days.

An ambulance transporting a male passenger with oxygen and covered in a blanket arrived on a stretcher to a local hospital, Blu Radio reported. He was apparently alive.

The aircraft, which made a stop in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, was transporting the first division Chapecoense soccer team from southern Brazil.

The team was scheduled to play Wednesday in the first of a two-game Copa Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional of Medellin.

The plane was carrying 72 passengers and nine crew members, aviation authorities said in a statement.

Local radio said the same aircraft transported Argentina's national squad for a match earlier this month in Brazil, and previously had transported Venezuela's national team.

A video published on the team's Facebook page showed the team readying for the flight earlier Monday in Sao Paulo's Guarulhos international airport.

The team, from the small city of Chapeco, was in the middle of a fairy tale season. It joined Brazil's first division in 2014 for the first time since the 1970s and made it last week to the Copa Sudamericana finals - the equivalent of the UEFA Europa League tournament - after defeating Argentina's San Lorenzo squad.

  6. Memo To Dopelganster.

    You used to be my blog boo until u started sounding sarcastic.

    I read her comments Yesterday on Toke/Maje/Anita buohala and was shocked at your bragings.

    Women like you end up suffering worst in marriage when you realise its no longer theory but practical in marriage.

    Advice for you is be married first before dishing those advices. Drop that mentality so you can discover the true meaning of love, sacrifice, tolerance, and let God leads.

    I have a friend who reasons like you back then about marriage. Today wetin she dey see for marriage she no fit say fiem! Even her beauty,money,career, no help. She left the first married 2nd, it repeated until she dropped her ego, worked on her bitter believes about men and now she is happy.

    You mean if Toke didnt air their dirty relationship linens in a book to d world, they wouldnt have been other way to treats Maje fuckups?

    Have you asked yourself why she still stayed despite these tales? Another lesson for you.

    You sound bitter like someone who has been hurt in love. Move on, there is true love and dont let the experience memp you.

    My dear, no bi by mouth o. Free SDK. She fouggt alot for Toke back then, dont forget until Toke went above the limit. Virtuos, smart women don't fight that way, we fight on our knees. Silence treatments na him kill pass.

    There are some money we shoukd make. Ask rich and lonely women.
