In Helicopter Crash After Ruptured Breast Implant

A billionaire’s daughter suffered a ruptured breast implant on her dad’s private island in the Bahamas and was being flown to hospital when the helicopter crashed, killing seven onboard.
Billionaire coal tycoon Chris Cline, 60, was rushing his daughter Kameron Cline, 22, to hospital for the medical emergency when their helicopter plunged into the Bahamian sea, a friend of the family told the news on Friday.
Mr. Cline donated US $1 million to American President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee, and was worth US $1.8 billion. He was on the chopper with daughter Kameron when it dropped into the Atlantic Ocean minutes after taking off around 2 a.m.
Also onboard the doomed helicopter were three of Kameron’s female friends from college: Brittney Searson, Delaney Wykle, and Jill Clark – all aged between 21 and 22. There were two other men on the chopper: Geoffrey Painter, 52, and David Jude, 56.
The three men and four girls all perished when the helicopter crashed into the ocean about two miles off the coast of Mr. Cline’s private island in the Caribbean.
A new report reveals that one of Kameron’s breast implants ruptured while she was on the island. The girl had recently undergone breast augmentation surgery, according to the source. The nature of the medical issue was unspecified in earlier reports.
One of the recovery divers told the media that he and his son searched the crash site and saw the dead passengers inside the submerged helicopter.
“My son put on his dive gears and got into the water,” said McGregor Russel, a native of the island. “He said he saw persons onboard. Some of them still had on their seat belts.”
“My son said he had to take the pilot’s hands away from the controllers. The bodies of the men were intact, as if no one was even trying to loosen their seat belt, and the doors were off.”
“The section of the helicopter where the girls were sitting was caved in by the impact. The girls were crushed together so tight, they had to be cut away from each other,” he said.
Mr. Cline founded a coal mining company in West Virginia, which he sold in 2015 for more than $1 billion. He was also a major donor to Donald Trump and previously dated Elin Nordegren, ex-wife of Tiger Woods.
His daughter Kameron Cline had recently graduated from Louisiana State University, where she was a member of the Phi Mu sorority.
The cause of the crash is under investigation. Meteorologists have said weather was not a factor.
