Colombia Plane Crash With Brazilian Soccer Team Chapecoense (VIDEO)

The fairy-tale rise of Brazil’s Chapecoense — from small football club to national heroes — has been cut tragically short, leaving the country mourning the loss of one of its most endearing sports teams.

The plane carrying the Brazilian team to the biggest game in its history was en route Monday night from Bolivia to Colombia when it crashed in Rionegro, near Medellin, killing 71 people.
Six people survived the crash, according to authorities. Chapecoense defender Alan Luciano Ruschel was among the survivors.
