Details are scarce and there are all sorts of wild reporting out there on Twitter.
What we do know is that the plane carrying the Chapecoense team to play the first leg of the Copa Sudamericana final against Atlético Nacional has crashed. There are survivors, though it's unclear how many. At least a couple, six reported, maybe as many as 10, maybe less, maybe a lot more. There were 81 people onboard, including the team, media, crew, and other passengers.
