Estate of late Leicester City team owner sued over crash

BANGKOK — The family of an employee of the Thai owner of England's Leicester City soccer team who died in the same helicopter crash that took her boss's life has sued his estate and his family's duty-free business for 300 million baht ($9.8 million).

Former beauty queen Nusara Suknamai was one of five people killed when team owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's helicopter crashed and burst into flames shortly after takeoff from the soccer field following an Oct. 27, 2018, match.

A lawyer for Nusara's family said the suit was filed Monday in Bangkok Civil Court because Thai law holds the aircraft's owner responsible for any harm to passengers.

Britain's Air Accidents Investigation Branch said the crash occurred when the pilot lost control of the aircraft because of a mechanical fault.
