Leicester City owner's helicopter accident recorded by a security camera

A helicopter has crashed in the carpark outside the King Power Stadium following this evening's Premier League draw between Leicester City and West Ham

Vichai bought Leicester City in 2010 and became chairman the following February, pouring millions into the team and becoming a beloved figure in the club and the city - a feat rarely achieved by the Premier League's foreign owners.

The father of four and founder of duty-free King Power International was a huge favourite with the club's fans.

New Ipswich Town manager Paul Lambert was at Leicester City today to pay his tributes to those who lost their lives in Saturday's helicopter crash.

Members of the Leicester City first team came out of one of the turnstiles at the stadium to observe the growing memorial.

British police named the four other crash victims as Nursara Suknamai - an actress and a runner-up in Miss Thailand Universe in 2005 - and Kaveporn Punpare, both members of Vichai's staff, pilot Eric Swaffer and passenger Izabela Roza Lechowicz.

Nigerian star Wilfred Ndidi, who scored the Foxes equaliser in the game to ensure they avoid defeat said: "You were far too kind and supportive". It then plummeted to the ground and burst into flames.

"This was a normal practice for the owner to come in, park the helicopter in the middle of the pitch and everybody thought it was great".

"He's put so much money into the club".

"The future is looking bright or at least it was looking bright". It continued to prosper even after Thaksin's ousting in a coup that year. But overall, just for the disaster to happen so close to the football club - it's very hard to take in at the moment.

I have just never known someone, as an owner, to be so popular.

The maker of the helicopter, Italian aerospace company Leonardo SpA, said it was ready to help the investigation.

It is believed to be the first accident involving an AW169 aircraft.

SC’s Alok Verma Order: Who Gets What Out of It?
Four IB men were caught snooping on Verma hours after he was sent on long leave in what was described as a constitutional coup. He said only the PM, chief justice of India and the leader of opposition can appoint and remove the CBI director.

Last month a court rejected an attempt to sue King Power for hundreds of millions of dollars in unpaid revenue to AoT.

It said that as a mark of respect to those who died, players would wear black armbands at all EFL fixtures over the next seven days.

Leicester City Owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, Confirmed Dead after His Chopper Crashed outside Home Stadium in the UK.

Leicester City fan and former player, Gary Lineker, battled through the "most difficult" Match Of The Day he has ever hosted on Saturday and has since paid tribute to the chairman on Instagram.

Leicester manager Claude Puel and the club's first team and youth players were amongst those in attendance as Srivaddhanaprabha's wife Aimon and son Aiyawatt visited the stadium, laying the wreath on the pitch's centre circle - the spot where the helicopter had taken off from shortly before it crashed on a nearby auto park.

According to eyewitnesses, the helicopter just cleared the top of the stadium before it started to spin. Police have already handed the file over to air accident investigators, while some eyewitnesses hailed the pilot as a hero for steering the plunging helicopter away from the still-busy stadium.

"Within a second it dropped like a stone to the floor.Luckily it did spiral for a little while and everybody sort of ran, sort of scattered".

By that time, Vichai had also brought himself closer to the royal family: King Power's name was in honour of late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Aiyawatt was later joined by the team, including striker Jamie Vardy, center-back Harry Maguire and keeper Kasper Schmeichel, with the group pausing in reflection in front of the flowers.

For all those long journeys the Spireites faithful have made over the past few years to see completely unacceptable performances, there has been little done by the club to show their appreciation for such ongoing loyalty.

"King Power's most important business is based on a monopolistic concessionary right granted by the government", explained Pavida Pananond, an academic at Thammasat Business School told AFP.
