BOLIVIAN AUTHORITIES HAVE shut down a charter airline whose plane ran out of fuel and crashed in the Colombian mountains, killing 71 people including most of a Brazilian football team.As grieving relatives identified their loved ones and the first body was sent home, a harrowing recording emerged of the pilot’s final minutes seeking to land the plane without fuel.Bolivia said it had suspended the charter company LaMia’s permit and ordered an investigation into its operations.It also suspended the executive staff of the civil aviation authority and the airports administrator for the duration of the probe.Investigators are examining pilot error and air traffic control problems as possible factors in Monday night’s crash.The disaster killed most of the Brazilian football club Chapecoense Real and 20 journalists traveling with them to a major regional championship match. Source: Andre PennerLaMia, which specialises in flying Latin American football teams, has ferried local clubs and national sides around the region, with players including superstar Lionel Messi.Investigators are trying to piece together the last moments of the doomed flight, which slammed into the mountains outside Medellin with 77 people on board – six of whom miraculously survived.Forensic authorities who identified the bodies said in a statement yesterday that the dead included 64 Brazilians, five Bolivians, a Venezuelan and a Paraguayan.The body of the last was scheduled to be flown back to Paraguay yesterday evening, with the rest departing today, it said.‘Fuel emergency’Details of the jet’s terrifying end emerged in an audio recording aired by Colombian media in which the pilot radios frantically that he is out of fuel.In the recording, pilot Miguel Quiroga contacts the control tower seeking priority to land.The operator tells him he will have to wait seven minutes for another plane to land first.“We have a fuel emergency, ma’am, that’s why I am asking you for it at once,” the pilot replies.Although the timeline was not immediately clear, shortly after, the pilot radios: “Ma’am, Lima-Mike-India 2933 is in total failure, total electrical failure, without fuel.” Caskets of the Chapecoense soccer team are covered in sheets with their logo at a funeral home in Medellin, Colombia.

It’s terrible.” Osmar Machado holds a photograph of his son Filipe Machado and granddaughter Antonella. His son died on his father’s 66th birthday.

Two crew members were likely to leave the hospital yesterday, an official said.Goalkeeper Jakson Follmann was set to undergo surgery again after having his right leg amputated.- © AFP 2016Read: ‘It’s hard to keep going’ – Fans flock to stadiums to mourn Chapecoense football teamRead: ‘Total failure, electric and fuel’ – Frantic audio between pilot and controllers before fatal air crash 14,898 Views Image: AP/Press Association Images Dec 2nd 2016, 4:27 PM Relatives of Paraguayan Gustavo Encina who died in Monday’s plane crash attend the arrival of the coffin, which is covered with a Paraguayan flag, at Silvio Pettirossi airport, Paraguay.

La campagne de sensibilisation sur l’infarctus a été lancéeUne campagne de sensibilisation concernant l’infarctus a été lancée hier, à l’initiative des cardiologues de France. Cette campagne a été baptisée “Infarctus, une question de vie” et a pour but d’informer les Français sur les gestes à adopter face à cet accident cardiaque. Depuis plusieurs années, de nombreux Français sont sensibilisés à l’attitude à adopter face à un infarctus du myocarde. Les campagnes précédentes successives ont permis d’arriver au résultat suivant : 50% des Français savent aujourd’hui qu’une douleur dans la poitrine peut être un signe annonçant un infarctus tandis qu’une enquête Ipsos montre qu’un Français sur trois sait que c’est le Samu qu’il faut appeler dans ce cas là. Mais pour parfaire ce résultat et continuer à faire diminuer le nombre de décès des suites d’un infarctus, une nouvelle campagne de sensibilisation a été lancée et devrait durer au moins deux mois.À lire aussiInfarctus : définition, signes et symptômes, causes, comment réagir face à un infarctus ?Celle-ci se décline sous la forme de spots radio puis télévisés afin d’informer les Français sur les facteurs de risques de l’infarctus ainsi que des signes annonciateurs et des gestes à adopter, explique l’AFP. A noter que l’on compte en France environ un décès du fait d’un infarctus toutes les 40 minutes, soit 100.000 nouvelles crises cardiaques tous les ans. Le Dr Patrick Goldstein, spécialiste des urgences, explique ainsi à l’AFP que l’infarctus peut se manifester sous la forme d’une douleur dans la poitrine qui peut s’étendre au bras gauche, à l’épaule et la mâchoire mais également comme une douleur digestive. Chaque minute compte lors d’un infarctus, et il est primordial d’appeler directement le Samu plutôt que de passer par son médecin traitant comme le font 14% des Français. L’après-infarctus est également très important. La Haute Autorité de Santé explique que 40% des victimes d’infarctus ne suivent plus les recommandations du corps médical six mois après leur accident cardiaque.Le 12 janvier 2011 à 16:12 • Emmanuel Perrin
