FOOTBALL TRAGEDY Leicester City Owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Among Five Dead In Helicopter Crash Outside King Power Stadium

THE Leicester City owner is reportedly among five people feared dead after his helicopter crashed in a ball of flames in the club's stadium car park last night - but his daughter is not believed to have been onboard. The eight-seater helicopter belonging to Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha had flown from the King Power Stadium pitch live on TV moments before the explosion. The helicopter took off at around 8.45pm and nosedived in a ball of flames less than 200 yards away just seconds later. Eye-witnesses said the AW169 helicopter spiralled out of control in the air with an apparent problem with the tail fin. A source close to the family told the BBC Srivaddhanaprabha was in his helicopter when it crashed. According to Reuters, a source claimed the club owner was among five people who were on board the aircraft, as well as a daughter of Vichai, two pilots and a fifth person whose identity was not immediately known. However it has since emerged that Mr Srivaddhanaprabha's daughter is not believed to have been on board at the time of the crash. Source
