It could easily have been a case of making sure next of kin were informed and allowed tone to pass the news to other family members/give time for privacy.

Terrible thing

I don't think anyone died on the ground and the guys daughter wasn't even in the helicopter. the misinformation which was circulating rather explains why nothing official was released until some time after!
Yes thats right, on the LCFC forum they stated an elderly man on the ground was hit and killed, it did take a while to announce fully as Batch says that could be down to conacting the next of kin, quite unusual though in taking that long.

One of my close mates is a Leicester fan for the last 30 years and hes been in tears since he heard, its hit many many people, absolutely awful.

I think that has been confirmed as the case. Probably became a bit tricky trying to get hold of a particular NOK in Thailand

Yes this has rocked the East Mids pretty hard. Derby, Forest & of course Leicester fans all uniting in what is a terrible accident.

Up here I know several people from the area. The Leicester Chairman was not just a "dot the 'i' and cross the 'tees'" kind of man. He was heavily involved in the community and used his wealth to influence in a positive way.

He'll be incredibly missed by many in the East Midlands  Sad

There is further footage of the incident knocking about on social media, both from inside the ground (showing the loss of control) and also CCTV from outside, as you can imagine the net is heading into conspiracy theory overload!  No

Morbid fascination/desire to know what happened I guess. Certainly not enjoyment. The BBC even asked an expert for opinion about the footage.

As Batch said, i don't think there is any enjoyment, well, for some there might be, but for many, its merely curiosity.
