Ex- Beauty Queen Named Among Those Who Died With Billionaire Srivaddhanaprabha In Helicopter Crash

One of the five victims of the helicopter crash outside the home of Leicester City Football Club was a runner-up in Thailand's Miss Universe beauty pageant.

Nursara Suknamai, 33, died alongside her boss and the club's owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in the incident, which also claimed the lives of colleague Kaveporn Pupare and pilots Eric Swaffer and Izabela Roza Lechowicz.

The former beauty queen's social media pages are filled with photographs of her with Leicester City players including Harry Maguire and Jamie Vardy. 

Yoga fanatic Ms Suknamai regularly posted her workouts on Instagram as well as other shots from Venice, Milan, Nice, Paris, Royal Ascot and the FIFA World Cup in Russia in the summer.

In 2005, she finished runner-up in Miss Thailand Universe and won a "Miss Photogenic" competition before going on to work in television.

She starred in Thai soap operas between 2007 and 2013 before moving on to work full-time as an assistant to Mr Srivaddhanaprabha.
