Rizzy's  revision on Alyxis post

A charter plane carrying the Brazilian soccer team suffered a deadly crash.  The plane was carrying 77 people that included players, coaches and journalists.

The plane reportedly had a fuel problem. The crash took place near Medellin, Colombia, on the side of a mountain.  

During a 12 minute recording, the pilot said the plane had experienced, "total electrical failure."  

The theory that the plane crashed without fuel was supported by the fact there was no explosion from the impact.

The Chapecoense team had risen in the ranks and was known for representing a scrappy industrial city in Brazil. They were heading to the finals of the Copa Sudamericana tournament. The tournament is one of South America’s most important tournaments.

There were six survivors from the collision. Three were players, two were crew members and one was a journalist.
