A plane carrying 81 people, including members of a Brazilian soccer team, has crashed in Colombia.
The plane was on its way to Medellin’s international airport, Colombian authorities said. At least 76 people have died and five survived, according to police.
Three of the survivors are members of Brazilian soccer team Chapecoense, the BBC reports.
The chartered plane, which declared an emergency at 10 p.m. Monday night due to an electrical failure, crashed in a mountainous area, which airport officials said was difficult to reach and could only be accessed by land due to weather conditions.
