Leicester City have confirmed the death of chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha after his helicopter crashed outside the club’s King Power Stadium on Saturday.

上周六,莱斯特城队主席的直升机在俱乐部沃尔克斯球场外坠毁。莱斯特城队方面目前确认主席维猜·斯里瓦塔那布拉帕(Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha)已不幸丧生。

More than an hour after the club’s 1-1 draw against West Ham, Srivaddhanaprabha’s helicopter took off from the center of the stadium’s pitch, cleared the stands and crashed seconds later.


Srivaddhanaprabha, 60, had used the helicopter on matchdays to travel between the stadium and London. And the club announced on Sunday he was indeed on board and did not survive the collision along with four others.


"It is with the deepest regret and a collective broken heart that we confirm our Chairman, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, was among those to have tragically lost their lives on Saturday evening when a helicopter carrying him and four other people crashed outside King Power Stadium. None of the five people on-board survived," a club statement read.


"The primary thoughts of everyone at the Club are with the Srivaddhanaprabha family and the families of all those on-board at this time of unspeakable loss.”


"In Khun Vichai, the world has lost a great man. A man of kindness, of generosity and a man whose life was defined by the love he devoted to his family and those he so successfully led. Leicester City was a family under his leadership. It is as a family that we will grieve his passing and maintain the pursuit of a vision for the Club that is now his legacy."


The Leicester statement also announced the postponement of Tuesday’s Carabao Cup match against Southampton and the development squad’s fixture against Feyenoord in the Premier League International Cup. The club said that as a mark of respect to those who died, players would wear black armbands at all Carabao Cup fixtures over the next seven days.

根据莱斯特城队的声明,它宣布推迟周二对阵南安普顿的英格兰足球联盟杯(Carabao Cup)比赛,以及英超联赛国际杯发展集训队对阵费耶诺德队的比赛。莱斯特表示,为表达对死者的尊重,球员们将在未来七天内在所有英格兰足球联盟杯比赛中佩戴黑色臂章。

Of the other victims, Leicestershire Police said on Sunday two were members of Vichai’s staff: Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare. Also killed were pilot Eric Swaffer and passenger Izabela Roza Lechowicz.

莱斯特郡警方也于周日公布了其它四名受害者的姓名信息,其中包括两名俱乐部成员Nursara Suknamai和Kaveporn Punpare,驾驶员Eric Swaffer和乘客Izabela Roza Lechowicz。

The police force said formal identification has not yet taken place, and that no one else was believed to have been injured.


The investigation into the cause of the crash was being led by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB), and was likely to take several days, the police said.
