Footballer killed in plane crash was to be dad

MOVING video has emerged from a week ago showing the moment a Brazilian footballer killed in the Colombian plane crash found out he was going to become a dad.

Chapecoense forward Tiago da Rocha Vieira was filmed receiving a message and gift from his wife, Graziele, with some of his teammates beside him.

The player, also known as Tiaguinho, is seen sitting against a wall as he reads a note delivering the news he is having a baby boy.

Scenes of joy follow with the 22-year-old jumping up to his feet and dancing and chanting with his mates.

The video was posted online today after it was revealed Tiaguinho was one of the 76 people who died in the air tragedy.

The top Brazilian football club wiped out on doomed Flight AMI2933 which crashed in Colombia changed planes at the last minute.

Authorities said that a sixth survivor had been found at the crash site near La Ceja.

However, the number of survivors dropped to five again after a spokesman for Brazilian soccer club Chapecoense said that goalkeeper Marcos Danilo had died in hospital.

Danilo reportedly called his wife from hospital but died moments after the call.

Brazil has declared three days of mourning for those killed.
