Peace. A survivor of the plane crash of the Brazilian soccer club Chapecoense jumped from the shovel a second time. Erwin Tumiri survived a serious bus accident in Bolivia on Tuesday, which left at least 20 dead and dozens injured, Bolivian media reported. Five years ago Tumiri was one of only six survivors of a plane crash in Colombia in which large parts of the Chapecoense crew were killed.

“I crawled out, sat down and said,” Again – I can’t believe it, “” the newspaper “Los Tiempos” quoted Tumiri as saying. His sister Lucía told “El Deber” that her brother had only minor injuries and was in hospital for treatment. According to the reports, the Bolivian is regularly on the route between Santa Cruz in the lowlands in the southeast of the country and Cochabamba in the central highlands and was on his way to work when the bus fell 150 meters at Colomi.

On November 28, 2016, the Tumiri was part of the crew of the plane with the Chapecoense team on board, which crashed on the way to Medellín for the final first leg of the Copa Sudamericana, the South American Cup, in Colombia. 71 people were killed in the accident, including almost all players as well as supervisors, coaches and accompanying journalists.
