Moment Brazilian Footballer Learned He Was Going To Be A Dad
Yesterday we learned of the tragic news that a plane carrying almost an entire Brazilian football team had crashed.
76 people were killed in the devastating crash, and today a video has been released showing 22-year-old Chapecoense forward Tiago da Rocha Vieira being filmed in his hotel room just a week earlier.
He had just been sent a message and a gift from his wife, Graziele; she was letting him know that he was to become a father.
Sitting against a wall, Tiaguinho, reads a note inside the gift bag. When he realises he is having a baby boy he jumps for joy and chants and dances along with his friends.
Team members had posed for a photo together before boarding the jet, which tragically suffered power failures while flying through the Antioquia Department on its way from Bolivia.
The pilot is believed to have circled around before crash landing in a desperate bid to lose fuel and avoid an explosion on impact.

Heartbreaking images have since emerged online showing devastated players who were not travelling with the Chapecoense squad sitting in the club's empty changing room.
Brazil has since declared three days of mourning.
