They stood up & shouted...I'm alive because I curled up in foetal position' -Colombian plane crash survivor

 A crew member who survived the Colombian plane crash has revealed the dramatic final moments before the plane went down.
Erwin Tumiri said terrified passengers left their seats and started screaming as the CP-2933 plane, struck by catastrophic electrical problems, began to plummet into a mountainside.

He says he was one of only six to survive the disaster which killed 71 - including all but three members of the Chapecoense football team - because he 'followed safety procedures'.

 I put the bags in between my legs to form the foetal position that is recommended in the accidents,' Mr Tumiri told rescuers who hiked up the remote mountains of Cerro Gordo.
'During the situation, many stood up from their seats and they started to shout,' Fox Sports Argentina quoted him as saying. 
 Another survivor, stewardess Ximena Suarez, told a government official the lights went off as the jet started to go down.
'I don't remember more at the moment,' she explained,
 Doctors have been treating traumatized the survivors - three footballers, a journalist and the two crew members - as an investigation into the crash began.
