They were headed to play the final of the tournament. Their story was a kind of dream come true, as this team in a matter of just a few years went from fourth division to the final of Copa Sudamericana, the second most important football tournament in South America. It's still unclear whether the reason for the plane crash was an electrical failure in the commands or an atrocious mistake in refuellibg which left the plane with no gas at that point of the flight.

What makes this a notable death is that it is a homeless person who died; who knows his life story that got him to where he was along life's road ending in his death tonight? And where was he? Resting in a homeless encampment alongside a Southern California freeway in the Los Angeles (Van Nuys) area!

A driver on the freeway, somehow lost control of his car, and the car left the freeway and crashed into the homeless encampment! How horrible :(

This unknown, unnamed as of yet homeless person will not be forgotten. It is a notable death :(

I really love his chicken, too bad he died yet he lived a really long life.

Man, JamesPup, you ALWAYS copy/paste text headers on links to deaths like this one, which annoys me to no end! Also didn't you even know that Don, who also starred in a lot of films and TV shows, would have turned 77 tomorrow?!
Still the same as it ever was.
