Why Leicester helicopter crash site suggests that the pilot of a convicted aircraft could be a hero

The trajectory of a helicopter crashing near Leicester Stadium suggests that his pilot acted heroically.

Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, owner of Leicester, and four other people allegedly boarded the plane when it crashed in front of King Power Stadium on Saturday night.

The 61-year-old billionaire, who owned the helicopter, was on board, according to one of his relatives. It is feared that he died with two pilots and two anonymous passengers.

Taking off from the pitch after Leicester's 1-1 draw with West Ham, the helicopter apparently ran into a problem moments later.

He dropped into a parking lot just outside the stadium, before igniting.

Aerial footage shows that he fell to a place where the chances of hitting people, vehicles, houses or buildings were slim.
