American billionaire Chris Cline with seven other passengers were killed when a helicopter was reported to have crashed in the Bahamas.

The Nassau Guardian quoted the Bahamas Tourism and Aviation Minister Dionisio D’Aguilar as saying that the helicopter crashed into the rocky area in the north of the country Thursday morning.

“We’ve found the plane. We believe all seven passengers are still in the helicopter when the crash occurred.

“However, we refuse to confirm any information.

“We believe the helicopter crashed, as soon as it departed,” D’Aguilar said.

He said the authorities were on the way to the scene, for further information, including if there were survivors, thus commencing investigations.

“The pilot did not ask for permission before departure,” he said.

Meanwhile, West Virginia’s local newspaper The Register-Herald citing some of Chris Cline’s colleagues reported that the helicopter was traveling from Bahamas to Fort Lauderdale in Florida, when it crashed.

“Today, we lost the West Virginia star Chris Cline and I lost a good friend,” said West Virginia Governor Jim Justice on Twitter, confirming the news of Cline’s death.

Justice said the businessman was working hard to build his business empire, and was always working to provide assistance when needed.
