In a shocking turn of events, Leicester City football club’s owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha’s, helicopter met with an accident right after the football team won a match over West Ham United in King Power Stadium, Britain. The helicopter apparently had a fault in its rear propeller right after taking off and it crashed in the club's park leading to the chopper bursting in flames.
As per reports, the helicopter started to spin as soon as it cleared the top of the stadium and then, crashed in the club's park nearby. It exploded and caught fire soon after. However, as the helicopter took several spins, it gave some time for the people at the park to scatter around, hence, avoiding any injuries, reports suggest. Latest reports suggest that five people were onboard this helicopter including Vichai and his daughter.
Mr Vichai is a Thai billionaire who is the owner of King Power Duty Free. He is said to be the 7th richest man in Thailand with the net worth of US $3.3 billion. His family includes his wife and four children.
After the news of his helicopter crash made headlines, his followers have been devastated. One of the Leicester City football club's supporter named Lee Burst has been quoted as saying to The Independent, "The owner has been everything to this club, they have made it successful."
