Early Monday morning Leicestershire police confirmed Srivaddhanaprabha, along with other four people on board, had been killed when his helicopter crashed outside the club’s stadium on Saturday night.
The accident happened around an hour after Leicester's 1-1 draw at King Power Stadium with West Ham United in a Premier League game on Saturday. The helicopter crashed near a car park outside the stadium shortly after taking off from the pitch.
According to reports, a bang was heard shortly after and the helicopter was seen spiralling out of control.
