Six people survived. One survivor recounts how he has to curl himself up like a fetus that ultimately led to his survival..His survival story is below..
Only six people – three players, a journalist and two crew members – survived the disaster on Monday night, and they are all being treated at local hospitals. Of the players, reserve goalkeeper Jackson Follmann was recovering from the amputation of his right leg, doctors said.
As Colombian plane crash survivor Erwin Tumiri heads home to Bolivia, dramatic new video from local police shows the moments after he was pulled from the wreckage.
Clad in a yellow police jacket, Tumiri – one of just six people who survived the plane crash that killed 71 in Medellin on Monday – sobbed in Spanish for “my crew.” Meanwhile, here is a footage of the players final moments just before the crash..WATCH!
“Calm down, don’t worry, we are here to help you, and your friends also,” a first responder replies in Spanish.
A clearly stunned Tumiri tells the responder his spine and arms hurt, then cries out two names.
“Don’t scream technician, calm down,” the responder says. “Don’t wear yourself down, technician, don’t wear yourself down.”
Shortly after the crash, Tumiri, a flight engineer, reportedly told media outlets that he survived by curling up in the fetal position with a bag between his knees as the jet careened toward the mountainside.
“I put the bags in between my legs to form the fetal position that is recommended in accidents,” he told Fox Sports Argentina in Spanish. “During the situation, many stood up from their seats, and they started to shout.”
