Plane crash tragedy reverberates across three countries

Luis Benavides, photo stringer, Medellin, Colombia; Carlos Valdez, correspondent, La Paz, Bolivia; Renata Brito, videojournalist, Rio de Janiero; Mauricio Savarese, sports writer, Rio; Renato Spyrro, freelance videojournalist, Rio; and Andre Penner, photographer, Sao Paulo, for aggressive all-formats coverage of the plane crash that killed 71 people, including members of a Brazilian soccer team. The team worked in three nations, getting vivid photos and video of the wreckage in Colombia, unearthing detail on the plane’s owner and fuel capacity in Bolivia, and videotaping interviews of the families of the dead in Brazil.
