Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha (R) and Aimon Srivaddhanaprabha (L), the son and wife of Leicester City’s Thai chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha who died in a helicopter crash at the club’s stadium, lay wreathes at the tributes to the victims of the crash at Leicester City Football Club’s King Power Stadium in Leicester, eastern England, on October 29, 2018.

Leicester City’s chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was among five people killed when his helicopter crashed and burst into flames in the Premier League side’s stadium car park moments after taking off from the pitch, the club said on October 28.

A stream of fans already fearing the worst had laid out flowers, football scarves and Buddhist prayers outside the club’s King Power stadium after Saturday’s accident in tribute to the Thai billionaire boss — the man they credit for an against-all-odds Premier League victory in 2016.
