Leicester helicopter crash: Ambulance service release statement with advice to public

Helicopter Of Leicester City Owners Crashes Outside The King Power Stadium Following Draw With West Ham United

Leicester City star Jamie Vardy led the messages of support to Foxes' owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha after his helicopter crashed outside the King Power stadium on Saturday night.

The incident occurred after the Premier League match between Leicester and West Ham, which finished 1-1, and eyewitnesses have said that police, emergency services and security were seen rushing to the scene.

The club's owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, travels from the stadium via helicopter after each he attends.

"Now we need to stress we don't know who was on board that helicopter".

"We received a call at 8.38pm this evening to reports of a helicopter crash near King Power Stadium", it read.




The news broke as BT Sport were analysing the day's events in the Premier League and the early news from the stadium is hazy, with reports suggesting that the helicopter crashed shortly after take-off. "The club will issue a more detailed statement once further information has been established".

But there were no immediate details about who was on board.

Mr Vichai bought the club in 2010, and the unfancied side won the Premier League title in 2016.

"Literally the engine stopped and I turned around, and it made a bit of a whirring noise", Brown told BBC Radio 5 Live. Lots of people started running towards the scene, likewise myself, and as I came around the corner there was just a huge fireball. The auto park is located just a few hundred metres away from where the pitch is. It hit the ground with a big bang then burst into flames.

Leicester City defender Harry Maguire tweeted a video of the aftermath of the crash with praying hands emojis.
