Leicester City


#322

We know roughly who was on board. It was Vichai, his daughter, two pilots and an unnamed person.


#323

Claude Puel?


#324

#325

I’m assuming everyone on board has died and it’s a question of ascertaining exactly who was on board and ensuring their loved ones are first to know.

Absolutely tragic.


#326

Any official news?


#327

He wasn’t on board according to a friend of his.


#328

All the statements mention the people ‘on board’- maybe people on the ground? Could be trying to identify them and contact families before releasing figures. Horrible stuff.


#329

I don’t think there’s another owner in world football who compares :frowning:


#330

So the BBC are confirming he was on board, but no confirmation of whether anyone survived or not.

Or is it just a given they didn’t?

Not good either way.


#331

Yeah, no news is bad news unfortunately in this case. Otherwise, I’m sure we would have heard of x, y, or z being transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital where they are considered critical, etc etc.

When we scratch away the surface, him being a chairman, the philanthropy, the success, the tragedy is unimaginable. He’s a fan who has gone to a football match. It’s incomprehensible what could have been going through their heads in the final few seconds before the crash. You don’t go to a football match and not return home. You just don’t.

R.I.P. :frowning:

#335

RIP


#336

RIP


#337

Tragic update


#338

It’s a shame that it takes a tragedy before people learn just how good a person was. I knew pretty little about the stuff he has done at Leicester football club and in the local area before now.


#339

Really tough time for Leicester City, such a tragedy :cry:.


#340

RIP to all aboard the helicopter x
