Herbert Wigwe, the Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings, waxed philosophical about life about 21 days to his death in the ill-fated chopper crash in California, United States.
Wigwe was reportedly on board a chopper with his wife, son and three other passengers when the unfortunate incident happened on Friday.
They were reportedly heading for Las Vegas to watch Super Bowl, the annual league championship game of the National Football League (NFL) of the United States.
The New York Times has confirmed the incident but kept the identities of the passengers.
However, sources in the banking industry confirmed that the bank chief was on board the ill-fated aircraft.
“A helicopter carrying six people crashed on Friday night near the California-Nevada border, and no survivors have been located as of Saturday morning.
“The Federal Aviation Administration said that the Eurocopter EC130 helicopter crashed at around 10 p.m. local time near Nipton, Calif., an unincorporated community about 60 miles south of Las Vegas in eastern San Bernardino County.
