Chapecoense Soccer Club

A plane carrying the Chapecoense Soccer Club ran out of fuel and crashed outside Medelin, Colombia late Monday night.

75 passengers died in the crash of the chartered plane. 6 passengers survived the crash including 3 members of the soccer team.

31-year-old goalkeeper Marcos Danilo Padilha died after being pulled from the wreckage alive.

The other survivors included a flight attendant, an aircraft mechanic, and journalist Rafael Valmorbida.

Six journalists from Fox Sports Brazil perished in the crash.

The chartered jet operated by LaMia went down around 10 p.m. Monday while en route from Bolivia to Medelin. The pilot had just received clearance to land when the jet ran out of fuel and plummeted to the ground.

Gen. Jose Acevedo said the plane did not explode on impact due to the lack of fuel. Communications between the crew and the tower indicated there may have been electrical problems.

U.K.-based aviation analyst Alex Macheras said passengers sitting five rows from an exit are the most likely to escape a plane crash.

But he added that every flight is different, and that "Passengers should not be specifically choosing to sit somewhere in the hopes that they survive a crash."

    YOu mean to say that not one person checked the fuel level before take off? Not one person, this could have been totally avoided. So very sad.

  • hotntot95

    Ran out of fuel?? WTF...

  • Rayne

    Don't they have ppl to check the fuel gauge before take off. Damn that's messed up jack.

  • hotntot95

    Total negligence...I can understand the fuel line was broken...but ran out?? Unacceptable....

  • Rayne

    Totally unacceptable and irresponsible of the airport to let them just go on like that.

  • Salliemae’s Boosh

    I read about this earlier today. Didn't know they ran out of fuel. R.I.P.

  • iWasteTime

    I saw a video of how planes have to "spiral" in to that airport and drop land. It looked crazy.
    God bless the families of the dead, the survivors and the Brazil as a whole !

  • Kanyade

    So sad.

  • missmiami305

    Wow! Tragic. Idk why the pic made me think of the movie Green Inferno.

  • puppylove

    That load master needs to be FIRED. How the hell you let a plane run out of gas. Like that is some basic calculation. Cheap ass mf.

  • puppylove

    Yes, the pilot checks the gauge and the load master verifies the amount of fuel needed for the trip.

  • puppylove

    Prayers to the families.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    No idea who he is when I heard of his passing. What's a popular song by him?

  • Keesh5000

    Didnt another Brazil soccer team die in a plan crash years ago and some survived.....like this is the 3rd time

  • Yoni

    Almighty bless those lives.
    But I hope it wasn't one of those planes with the broken gas gauge needle with a pilot talking about "I know my plane." Everybody got that one friend that the needle be BEHIND the E and they like "We gone make it. I know my car." Too soon? *scurries off*

    ^^^^^^^^^^

    God bless those who died. But bless those survivors too. OMG.
    Ben Cauley...his story is so SAD. He was the ONLY one who survived when the plane with Otis Redding and the Bar-Kays crashed back when. Said he still heard those folks calling out for someone to help them. He died not too long ago. Worse story ever.
    One of our local sports reporters too. Helicopter crash. Tony Debo. Lone survivor. Said same thing.

  • Libra80sBaby

    When I think of plane crashes...it seems the to be one of the most DEVASTATING accidental deaths...I really think about what people aboard be thinking whilst the plane is going down. Shit so sad. SMH

  • Incog-knee-gress

    YES!!!!! Tony Debo did an interview on our news station years ago. It happened in early 90s so maybe the 20 year anniversary of the crash. I was beyond damn it done. He is still visbily upset when speaking on it. EXTRA. Im talking trembles, whole thing. I was like why yall got him up here speaking on it. He obviously not ready

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    I saw this on the news this morning...How sad is this. You'd think even other countries would be up to par on planes and technology just like the US. I can't wrap my head around a flight taking off without enough fuel to get to a destination, unless there was mechanical error like a leak or something. Heads needs to roll here.
    Regardless it seems senseless. I pray for all those affected...in death and who survived.

  • Soda

    Didn't that have an affect on DJ AM, Nicole Richie's ex who survived a plane crash?

    Lack of fuel? WTF. I wonder if the it had a leak because that is something you check PRIOR to taking off.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    A lot of deaths ... A lot of mental illness rising... A lot of violence ... Off the wall things to make people fall to their knees ... It's a spiritual awakening happening... This awakening can not be stopped ... On the flip though there will many miracles happening .... Paranormal things being seen... And yes even actual angels will be appearing... People will now see them... The more you awaken the more you will see these things.... Try your best to focus on the love ... The miracles etc.... Not the hate it will be amplified and cause so much disheval for you as a individual ... Everything is amplified now .... Heaven is open now... Everything I say on here is very much true ...
