A plane carrying Brazilian football team Chapecoense to the biggest game in its history crashed in the Andes mountains near Medellin, Colombia, on 28 November. A total of 75 people died, including 19 of the 22 players who were on board. It was Colombia's worst air disaster in two decades.

The team, who were from Brazil's top football league, were on their way to face Atletico Nacional of Medellin in the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana final, South America's equivalent of the Europa League. The plane, en route from Bolivia where the team had a stopover, went down about 10.15pm on Monday night with 68 passengers and a crew of nine on board.
The BAe 146 charter aircraft was facing electrical problems and declared an emergency minutes earlier as it neared its destination, according to Medellin airport officials. The country's aviation agency said Tuesday (30 November) that the British Aerospace 146's cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder had been found among the wreckage strewn over a mountainside and were already being studied by experts.
Matches were cancelled around South America, and Brazil declared three days of mourning. "They were the hope of our city," said Jean Panegalli, 17, a student in Chapeco, where fans were disconsolate. "They played for love of the shirt and not for money. They played with the commitment that only those who have lived here know." The South American football federation suspended all games and activities following the crash.
Teammates Alan Ruschel, Hélio Neto and Jakson Follmannwere were rescued from the crash site and remain hospitalised. Ruschel was reported to be in the most serious condition, facing surgery for a spinal fracture. Doctors had to amputate Follmann's right leg.
