Herbert Wigwe and Others Involved in Helicopter Crash near California-Nevada Border: Video
We are saddened to report a tragic helicopter crash near the California-Nevada border. The helicopter was carrying Herbert Wigwe, the esteemed Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Access Holding, along with five other individuals. While details are still emerging, the situation appears to be dire, with no official confirmation from the bank holding company at this time.
According to sources familiar with the matter, Herbert Wigwe was indeed aboard the ill-fated helicopter. However, there is no confirmation regarding his condition or the fate of any potential survivors. Compounding this tragedy, Mr. Wigwe’s wife and son were also passengers on the flight. Additionally, it has been reported that prominent business figure Abimbola Ogunbajo was among those on board.
In response to this devastating event, the United States National Transport Safety Board (NTSB) has initiated an investigation into the crash. As of now, authorities have not been able to access the crash site, underscoring the urgency and complexity of the situation. The NTSB has announced the launch of a team to investigate the crash, with a focus on an Airbus Helicopter EC-130 near Halloran Springs, California.
The incident is believed to have occurred shortly after 10 p.m. local time in California. The passengers were traveling in a Eurocopter EC 130 helicopter that departed from Palm Springs, although the destination remains unclear. Unverified sources have suggested that the group may have been en route to attend the Super Bowl in Las Vegas, which is scheduled for the upcoming Sunday.
As we navigate through this distressing turn of events, it is important to approach the unfolding story with the utmost sensitivity and respect for those involved. The gravity of this situation cannot be overstated, and our thoughts and prayers are with the individuals affected by this tragedy.
