The death toll from the crash of an airliner
carrying a Brazilian football team in Colombia rose to 76 on Tuesday as officials said only five people survived the disaster.
Bodies of 25 people were been found at the accident site where a LAMIA airliner crashed with 81 people aboard, including members of a Brazilian football team, a local mayor said earlier.
Among the five survivors was football player Alan Ruschel, who was the defender of the Chapecoense Real, which was to face a Colubina team in the finals of the Copa Sudamericana on Wednesday, the head of Colombia's civil aviation agency, Alfredo Bocanegra, told reporters.
Elkin Osorio, the mayor of the nearby town of La Ceja, had said earlier that searchers had found 25 bodies and that there were five survivors from the tragic accident.
