    Leicester City owner among five dead in helicopter crash.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 29 Oct 2018, 12:00 pm

    The owner of Leicester City FC died when his helicopter crashed outside the stadium, the club has confirmed.

    Billionaire Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, two members of his staff, the pilot and a passenger were killed when the aircraft spiralled out of control and crashed in a fireball on Saturday.

    It had just cleared the King Power Stadium when it came down at 20:30 BST.

    The Duke of Cambridge said he was lucky to have known Mr Vichai, describing him as a dedicated family man.

    Leicestershire Police said it believed the other people killed in the crash to be two members of Mr Vichai's staff - Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare - pilot Eric Swaffer and his partner Izabela Roza Lechowicz.





    A sad story today about this helicopter crash where five people died.

    Even more sad that Leicester City stadium and football team will now need to find a new owner that will lay out the money that this man made available to the club.

    Yes, you are right Zathrus and I don't know how Leicester City Football is going to manage without him.

    A great loss to Leicester City in many ways.

    Yes, and as the tributes to the people killed in the crash, especially the owner, showed this very well.
