Ioannis Kandyllis, president of Greece’s committee for aviation accidents is looking into the matter. he says authorities shouted at him to stop but his phone was in his ear.
Ioannis Kandyllis told the Daily Mail: ‘All four passengers had disembarked and were escorted to a private lounge awaiting a private flight for London.
‘But as they were in the lounge the victim broke away and returned to the tarmac rushing to the helicopter at a fast pace.
‘Witnesses we spoke to said he had a phone to his ear and was walking fast to the aircraft, defying ground crew shouting to him “Stop! Stop!”
‘Within seconds the tragic accident occurred. It was horrific.’
Jack Fenton’s friends denied the official version-
‘No instructions were given when exiting the helicopter and no one escorted us to the lounge. All they did was open the doors for us.
‘We disembarked on our own and no one stopped Jack from going to the rear of the helicopter. None of us reached the lounge before the accident happened.
‘I’ve heard people say Jack was on his phone and ran back to the helicopter and this is totally untrue. He was not on his phone and why he turned towards the rear of the helicopter I don’t know.’
a British official made the following statement on death.
‘We are supporting the family of a British man who has died in Greece and is in contact with the local authorities.’
