Jack Fenton Helicopter Accident: Is He Still Alive Or Dead?

After a flight to Greece, Jack Fenton was struck in the head by a helicopter’s rotor blade and passed away. He flew to Athens with three friends after visiting the hotspot of Mykonos.

Fenton stepped behind the Bell 407 helicopter while its motors were still engaged at 6:20 pm in Athens. He was taking selfies when the helicopter’s rotor touched him in his head.

Emergency was called up in the heliport. However, Fenton had already passed away instantly.

A senior police official told: “He was the first to disembark the Bell 407 helicopter in Athens, and as he moved to the back, he was hit in the head by the aircraft’s small rear rotor. There was no chance of him surviving. His death was instantaneous.

Photos and videos from the heliport were intensively shared on social media.

Helicopter Pilot Arrested & Ground Crew Arrested

The police investigated Fenton’s death as an accident, but the pilot could still be charged with manslaughter. They believe that the order to leave the helicopter was given before the engine and propellers had stopped entirely.

The propellers of helicopters are designed to continue for about two minutes unless the pilot presses the button at around seconds. Thus, pilots are responsible for briefing properly until all the motor movements stop.

Fenton’s parents were also traveling to Greek. The affluent family had rented the helicopter, and it was believed that at least one of his siblings was present. They were in a second helicopter on a private charter from Mykonos to Athens.

The pilot on Fenton’s parent’s helicopter had prevented Fenton’s parents from witnessing the scene of the tragic accident. He made an unscheduled landing at Athens International Airport.

Friends of Fenton have safely returned to the United Kingdom. They will be providing their statement about the accident.

Meanwhile, the pilot and two ground crew have been arrested until further investigation.
