News video: At least 75 killed as plane carrying Brazilian football club crashes in ColombiaA chartered plane carrying Brazilian football team Chapecoense to the Copa Sudamericana final crashed in the Colombian mountains, killing 75 of the 81 people on board. Local media said the plane had reported an electrical fault shortly before it disappeared off radar screens although investigators are also looking into an account from one of the survivors that the chartered jet ran out of fuel about five minutes from its expected landing at Jose Maria Cordova airport outside Medellin.

The club’s main goalkeeper, Marcos Padilha aka Danilo, was also pulled alive from the wreckage but a spokesman said he later died in hospital.
