Leicester City’s Owner Helicopter Crashes Outside King Power Stadium



A helicopter crashed outside of Leicester City’s King Power Stadium on Saturday night after the Foxes’ 1-1 draw with West Ham.

Multiple reports said the helicopter belongs to Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who is often picked up and dropped off at games by a helicopter.

It was unclear who was on board the helicopter, which had taken off just moments before from the stadium. The helicopter which is thought to be able to carry up to 20 people spiralled out of control before crashing, Sky reported.

Leicester police said in a statement: “We are dealing with an incident in the vicinity of the King Power Stadium. Emergency services are aware and dealing.”

A Leicester City spokesman said: “We are assisting Leicestershire Police and the Emergency Services in dealing with a major incident at King Power Stadium. The Club will issue a more detailed statement once further information has been established.”

Srivaddhanaprabha, the billionaire owner of Thai duty-free retail giant King Power, bought Leicester City in 2010. In 2016, the club won the Premier League at odds of 5,000-1.
