After A Devastating Tragedy, These Soccer Fans Found Comfort In Coming Together

Finding hope after a devastating loss.


On Monday, tragedy struck as a plane carrying members of Brazil's Chapecoense soccer team crashed in Colombia. The aircraft was heading to the team's cup final in Colombia before it crashed into a mountain, killing 71 people on board.

Thankfully, six people — including three players — survived the devastating collision.

On Tuesday, a vigil was held in the team's stadium in Chapeco, Brazil. Not only was a candlelight vigil set up in the team's locker room, but as fans sat in the stands, some shed tears, some held banners, others chanted — while others simply sat in disbelief. 

The moment of coming together seems to be helping many heal through this heartache.

Check out the powerful tribute in the video above.
