HOW DID IT HAPPEN

It has also been reported that a fifth individual was inside the helicopter but his or her identity is yet to be revealed. So far, it is unknown whether there are any survivors.

Witnesses claim that the aircraft started tail spinning after reaching a height of approximately 200 feet and that it hit the ground of the club's car park.

A SHOCKING SIGHT

Flames soon engulfed the helicopter and the incident was witnessed by several people, including former Leicester City goalkeeper Peter Shilton, who saw the soccer match with his wife, Stephanie.

The security staff was shocked; although they have been trained to handle such situations, they never expected it to happen, saying that 'it was just utter carnage.'

While waiting for a statement release, fans of the soccer club have been leaving flowers and football scarves at the King Power Stadium to show their love and support for the victims' families.

ANOTHER INCIDENT

Earlier this year, a helicopter with six people aboard also crashed; the aircraft plunged into the New York City waterway, killing five of the passengers.

The only survivor was a man named Richard Vance, a licensed pilot from Danbury, Connecticut, who managed to free himself and was rescued by a passing tugboat.
