A plane carrying 77 passengers, including Brazil's Chapecoense soccer team, crashed in Colombia on Monday November 28th, leaving only 6 survivors. The chartered plane crashed shortly after taking off, not far from the José María Córdova International Airport in Medellin where the team was supposed to arrive. The team was getting ready to take on the top-rated Colombian team in the final of South America's 2nd most important soccer competition. Considered an underdog team, the football club was enjoying their best run in 40 years. The surviving players from the doomed flight, Jakson Ragnar Follmann, Alan Luciano Ruschel and Helio Hermito Zampier Neto will join the players who did not travel to mourn the crash victims.
