Authorities are searching for answers after a charter plane that was run by a tiny Bolivian airline slammed into a Colombian mountainside, nearly wiping out the Brazilian Chapecoense professional soccer team. The Medellin medical examiner is now working to identify the 71 killed. There were six survivors, including three players from the soccer team, a journalist and two crew members. The team was heading to the Copa Sudamericana final, in what would have been their biggest game to date. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) MICHELL CASTILLO, COLOMBIAN MAN, SAYING: "Those kids were coming here with a desire to win, with a desire to fight. Days before, they had bid farewell to their families and their brothers. So I send the relatives of those guys much support." The co-pilot of another plane in the area says the pilot of the doomed airliner radioed that he was running out of fuel and needed to make an emergency landing. Survivors say the lights went out in the plane moments before impact. One man says he survived because he curled up into a fetal position... while others panicked... in a crash that has shaken Latin America and the soccer world.
