Helicopter crash: Fans mourn loss of ‘a great human being’

Leicester, England (CNN)On a bitterly cold Sunday outside the King Power Stadium, Bernie Webster tried in vain to hold back the tears.

He is one of hundreds of Leicester City fans who had flocked there, shaken and stunned by the news that the helicopter belonging to the team’s revered chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha had crashed following Saturday’s match against West Ham United. All five people on board the helicopter are believed to have died.
Fans of all ages laid shirts, flowers and scarves. One child cried as she held her parents’ hands, one man couldn’t find the words to express his despair.
