ORIGINAL STORY:

There was a horrifying plane crash involving members of Chapecoense Real, the Brazilian football team. The plane carried around 70 people including the football players when it crashed in Columbia.

Details thus far are not yet complete, but photos and videos taken before the crash can give a rough idea as to who were in the plane before the disaster.

After the Munich Air Disaster of 1958, which shattered Manchester United, it seems like 2016 has a similar horrifying story for the Chapecoense.

Who among the members of the Chapecoense Real team are in the crash?

According to BBC, the chartered plane reportedly flew from Bolivia. The details about the incident are not yet comprehensive. However, there are reported survivors.

There have been certain images and videos of the real members of the Chapecoense team before they got on to the flight. Furthermore, images of the plane have also started to surface on Twitter.

Consequently, the video that has surfaced on Twitter was shot moments before the team along with the players set their foot on the plane. According to The Guardian, the airport authorities have confirmed that the plane was carrying the players of the Chapecoense team from Brazil.

The plane reportedly carried the Argentina national team this month. Federico Gutierrez, the mayor of Medellin, has claimed that there’s a possibility of survivors. The names are unknwon so far, but the videos and photos can give us an idea.

Gutierrez has also said that the incident was “a tragedy of huge proportions”. BBC has reported that the plane crash happened outside the city on a mountainous area before local midnight time. The final will not continue.

Jose Maria Cordova de Rionegro airport tweeted, “Confirmed, the aircraft licence number CP2933 was carrying the team @ChapecoenseReal. Apparently there are survivors”
