This is a breaking story. According to the twitter link there are 72 people on board. It is being reported that the Brazilian First Division Soccer Team were on the plane.

There may be survivors as well. I will update with more links. Hope it's true that there are survivors.

Update:

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Authorities are responding to an emergency after an airplane with 72 people on board has crashed on its way to Medellin's international airport. Medellin's international airport said on its Twitter account that the aircraft had departed from Bolivia. It's not clear if there are any survivors. But local media reported that the charter aircraft was carrying members of the soccer team Chapecoense from Brazil, which is scheduled to play Copa Sudamerica finals against Atletico Nacional on Wednesday in Medellin.

""Medellin’s Mayor Federico Gutierrez said that it is possible there are survivors. “It’s a tragedy of huge proportions,” Gutierrez told Blu Radio on his way to the site in a mountainous area outside the city where the chartered aircraft is believed to have crashed shortly before midnight local time.""

Mountain crashes rarely allow survivors.

Prayers and thoughts for the families and Brazil. Brazilians love their soccer players. Hoping peace for them.

Depends. I've seen some that hit in the mountains that quite a few people survived. It all depends on how they hit, and the angle of the terrain.

The Brazilian govt fell out of favour with the US govt not long ago.

Perhaps this event is a form of attack on Brazil and or its leadership? Lets see what eventuates over the next few months.

If 4 people could survive the JAL 123 crash then pretty much anything is survivable .

Thirty-Three survived the initial impact of the 1972 crash in the Andes. So yeah, it's entirely possible.

Reports are now saying they're moving survivors from the scene. They can only get there by ground due to weather in the area.

I think if I was a soccer player, I'd be really nervous when flying in South America.

Hopefully more survivors are found...

It's officially six, but unofficial sources say at least 10. It's going to take awhile to get hard numbers.

It looks like they went into a holding pattern, then crashed after they started towards the airport again.
