Helicopter Of Premier League Team Owner Goes Down In Stadium Parking Lot

Leicester City's Premier League stadium

The fate of the architect of one of  the greatest global sports stories of this decade is unknown. Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha usually travels by helicopter to get back and  forth from King Power Stadium for Premier League matches.  That  helicopter crashed tonight in the parking lot just outside the stadium  after the Foxes tied West Ham 1-1.  It exploded and was in flames soon  after.  Leicester City shocked the world by winning that league in 2016  after starting the season as five-thousand-to-one underdogs.  The team's  owner is a Thai billionaire who started King Power. It was his habit  to have a plane land in the middle of the stadium for him and his family  to travel home.
