A plane that crashed in the mountains of Colombia, killing 71 people, including members of a Brazilian football team, may have run out of fuel, a Colombian military source told AFP.
Colombia’s civil aviation authority had initially said 75 people were killed. But it later emerged that four people on the passenger manifest had not boarded the plane — a club official, a journalist, the mayor of the team’s hometown and the speaker of the state assembly.
Rescuers and aviation authorities said the survivors were three players, two crew members and a journalist.
The team’s lead goalkeeper, Marcos Danilo Padilha, 31, died on the way to hospital, the civil aviation authority said. AFP News Agency
