The first six survivors were found of the 81 people aboard the chartered aircraft from Bolivia that crashed on approaching Medellin in Colombia Monday night. The passengers included members of the top Brazilian Chapecoense football team, who were on their way to play against Medellin’s Atletico Nacional in the final of the Copa Sudamericana club competition. The club has can cancelled all its events. The plane reported electrical problems before the crash.
