Thoughts are with those affected.
THis looks worse and worse the more I see of it. BBC are even suggesting that Claude Puel the manager was on board. Really hope everyone in boaed is ok, but it really doesn’t look good. I’m lost for words.
As soon as we have news on the people within the helicopter, someone give me a bell.
thoughts and prayers go out. Looks bad.
Really really sad news.
Puel confirmed ok.

It's terrible. Only way it could be worse is if they'd left 15 minutes earlier - crashed in the car park outside one of the gates which had a few thousand people milling around just moments before.
That would have been the pure nightmare scenario. My thoughts go out to those in the helicopter, seems like it was just pure bad luck and something just stopped working

Leicester confirm all 5 on board the helicopter, including owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, have all passed away. RIP. Thoughts are with friends and family
More investigations are continuing as to how it happened but it seems the pilots diverted the helicopter to a quieter part of the car park than other, busier areas which could have resulted in more casualties. INormally I'd be sceptical of an owner having such a close relationship with his players and whether that was abit too much and having an influence on decisions, but in this case he showed a genuine bond for his team. I'm sure his son will take over the reins and try to keep things going.
