China Aviation Daily | Nov. 30, 2016

A horrific plane crash in Colombia left 71 people dead Monday night, including members of a professional Brazilian soccer team. But police said six people survived the crash in the mountains outside Medellin - three soccer players, two crew members and a journalist.

Four people who were scheduled to board the plane decided at the last minute to not travel, according to regional police. Authorities initially believed that 81 people were on board due to the passengers who did not fly. Two Chapecoense players did not travel with the team because of injuries, a club spokesperson told ABC News. The coach's son also did not travel with the team as planned because he forgot his passport.

Aerocivil, Colombia's civil aviation authority, published a list of those who were on the plane on its social media pages.
