Man Dies In Mykonos Greece After Walking Into The Blades Of A Helicopter While Allegedly Attempting a Selfie

Authorities investigating the death of a 22-year-old man on holiday in Mykonos, who died horribly after being struck by helicopter blades, believe it may have been a tragic photo op gone awry. The Sun reported that Jack Fenton and his three friends recently disembarked from their rented black Bell 407 helicopter after returning from the Greek island.

They were removed from the vehicle and taken to a private lounge where they awaited a plane to take them back to London. However, Jack quickly walked back to the helicopter when others yelled at him to do so.

Man dies after walking into helicopter rotor blades while on vacation

He had a phone in his ear as he moved toward the tail of the helicopter, where the rotor blades were still spinning; There it stuck in the head, killing him instantly, according to witnesses who spoke to the Greek Aviation Accidents Committee.

The incident was only described as “terrible” by witnesses. The “deeply traumatized” pilot of the helicopter was arrested along with 2 ground technicians. Police are examining every possibility, which reportedly includes “the possibility that the boy is going there to take a selfie in the excitement of the moment.”

When their pilot asked for emergency clearance to abort the landing to spare Jack’s parents the horrifying sight of their son, the pilot of the second helicopter traveling on the same tarmac took them to Athens Airport instead.

It seems like he paid far more attention to his phone than his surroundings, and tragedy ensued. We wish his family the best at this terribly tragic time. Rest in peace.
