Two plant-based advocates were among the five victims of a helicopter crash outside Leicester City FC on Saturday.

Leicester City Chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was killed in the accident along with two members of his staff – Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare.

Pilot Eric Swaffer and his partner Izabela Roza Lechowicz – passionate plant-based advocates who lived together in Surrey – also died.

‘Deeply missed’

“They stood for spirituality and plant-based living and were fantastic advocates for the world,” said Plant Based News Founder Klaus Mitchell, who was friends with the couple. “They will be deeply missed.”

He added that the couple has hosted a number of interviews between PBN and plant-based physician Dr. Milton Mills, as well as a meeting with The World Peace diet author Will Tuttle. “These reached millions of people, helping thousands of lives.”

‘Beautiful people’

“They were beautiful people who died tragically together,” another friend of the couple told PBN. “And they were very much in love.”

“Izabela and Eric: a warm-hearted couple who loved life and each other in equal measure. May your memory be a blessing to us all,” another added.

A statement by Leicester Police said no other people were injured by the crash. The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) is leading an investigation
