The owner of Leicester City club died yesterday, moments after the end of the game against West Ham.
A source close to Leicester City said Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, owner of the club, was among five people aboard a helicopter that crashed near the team’s stadium.
He said Vichai’s daughter was in the helicopter, along with two pilots and a fifth person, who was not immediately identified.
“There were no confirmed details of anyone surviving the incident”, the source said.
The billionaire helicopter crashed after the West Ham United game in the 10th round of the English Premier League.
The owner of the club used to board the helicopter after the matches from the Lester’s King Power Stadium, where the match was held to his home.
Eyewitnesses told British newspapers that the helicopter’s engine had stopped in the air before helicopter hitting the ground and crashing.

The British media also confirmed that the plane crashed moments after taking off and burned in the parking beside the stadium.
The fortune of Srivaddhanaprabha, (60 years old), is worth billions of dollars, most of which came from the chain of stores in Thailand and the “King Power” shops in the free markets of the Asian country’s airports.
