Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha killed in helicopter crash outside stadium

Leicester City have confirmed the death of chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha after his helicopter crashed outside the club’s King Power Stadium on Saturday.

More than an hour after the club’s 1-1 draw against West Ham, Srivaddhanaprabha’s helicopter took off from the center of the stadium’s pitch, cleared the stands and crashed seconds later.

Srivaddhanaprabha, 60, had used the helicopter on matchdays to travel between the stadium and London. And the club announced on Sunday he was indeed on board and did not survive the collision along with four others.
