The United States National Transportation Safety Board, NTSB, has stated that the helicopter in which the Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings PLC, Herbert Wigwe, died caught fire after it crashed.

The Transportation Authority board member, Michael Graham, during a media briefing on the incident disclosed that the crashed helicopter took off from the Palm Springs Airport and was heading toward Boulder City, Nevada, when the accident occurred.

The authority also confirmed that six people, including two crew members were onboard the chopper when it crashed.

Those who died in the Friday night helicopter crash near Nevada, United States, include the co-founder and Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings Plc, Herbert Wigwe; his wife, Chizoba; his son, Chizi; and Bimbo Ogunbanjo, a former chairman of the NGX.

He said "The tragic incident occurred about 90 minutes after the charter flight took off," adding that “the helicopter impacted the terrain south of I-15 near Halloran Springs, California,” about 75 miles (120 kilometres) northeast of the city of Barstow.

Graham said: “As far as we know, there was fire when the aircraft did contact the terrain.”

He explained that witnesses said there “was rain with wintry mix” when the accident occurred, adding that ongoing investigations would reveal the cause of the crash.

According to him, investigators are still working on finding out the exact weather at the time of the crash.

He said “This is the beginning of a long process. We will not jump to any conclusions, it could take 12 to 24 months for the full report on the investigation to be ready".
