Sept. 2nd

About a week ago Chile suffered a devastating blow. A plane crashed while trying to land on Juan Fernandez Island. All 21 people on board died. Among those who died was Felipe Camiroaga, an incredibly famous TV personality, well loved by most Chileans. Also on board the plane was the father of a second grade student from my school.

Camiroaga worked on a morning news program called Buenos Días a Todos (Goodmorning Everyone). He was traveling to the island with his crew to report on the reconstruction on the island following the earthquake and tsunami that hit last year.

A makeshift memorial has been set up outside the TV studio where Camiroaga worked.
