Five Die in Brazil Small Plane Crash

SAO PAULO – A small plane crashed on Wednesday in the Brazilian city of Manaus, killing five of the six people on board, officials with the local mayor’s office reported.

The plane crashed and then exploded early Wednesday morning shortly after taking off in an overgrown area of the capital of Amazonas state en route for Novo Aripuana.

Among the victims is a 4-year-old boy, according to firefighters, who found only one of the people on board alive when they arrived on the scene.

That person is in “very serious” condition suffering burns over 90 percent of their body, authorities said.

Brazil is still in shock after last week a chartered plane with 76 people on board, most of them players or staffers with Brazil’s Chapecoense soccer club, crashed near Medellin, Colombia.

The club was en route to Medellin to play Colombia’s Atletico Nacional in the Copa Sudamericana final.

Only six people survived that crash, including three of the team’s players, two crewmembers and a journalist.
