Cape Town - Leicester City owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's helicopter is caught on video as it spins out of control before crashing just after taking off from the King Power Stadium.

The footage shows the horrifying moment the helicopter, carrying Srivaddhanaprabha and four others took off before crashing to the ground moments later.

The widely-shared video shows the helicopter taking off, hovering above the stadium before starting to spin out of control and crashing to the ground.

Pilot Eric Swaffer, his partner Izabela Roza Lechowicz, also a pilot, and two members of Srivaddhanaprabha's staff, Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare, were also killed.

The video was filmed by a corporate guest who was allowed pitch-side to video the Westland AW169 taking off.
