Seventy one of the 77 people on board were killed in the crash


A memorial service for the victims of the LaMia Airlines flight 2933, which crashed into the hills of Colombia, killing 71 of the 77 people on board, is due later today.

Tributes will be paid at the Arena Condá, the stadium of Chapecoense.

Twenty two players and staff from the club were on board the flight, three survived.

Karin Bruxel is a psychologist who has been helping friends and relatives deal with the loss:“The moment of farewell is the moment the person concretely realises their loss, because the person can see they have actually lost their loved one. So they need time. This takes time, like healing a wound, one does not heal from one day to next.”

Amazing: Chapecoense defender Neto, who survived the tragic plane crash, has been told he'll make a full recovery and be able to play again.
