It was October 13, 1972. 54 people boarded a charter flight from the Argentine airport to Chile. It was a flight like many others, but no one was prepared for what was to come. A rugby team on board the flight was preparing for its rugby match in Santiago. They could never imagine that this flight would result in a plane crash and an incredible survival story that they starred in.
