Olushola whose name was in the manifest, escaped death as he did not board the ill-fated flight after opting to travel by road.
Faleye Olushola, the Special Assistant to the Co-founder and Group Chief Executive Officer of Access Holdings Plc, Herbert Wigwe miraculously escaped death on Friday night in the ill-fated helicopter crash that claimed the lives of his boss, wife and son.
SaharaReporters reported on Saturday that Wigwe; his wife, Chizoba, and son died in a helicopter crash, which occurred on Friday night in the United States.
But somehow, Olushola whose name was in the manifest, escaped death as he did not board the ill-fated flight after opting to travel by road.
According to ThisDay, Olushola flew with Wigwe, his wife, son and former Group Chairman of Nigerian Exchange Group Plc (NGX Group), Abimbola Ogunbanjo from London, United Kingdom to Palm Spring, a city in California, US.
But on getting to Palm Spring, Olushola declined to board the ill-fated flight going to Boulder City in Nevada, insisting that he would not travel by helicopter at night due to the weather conditions.
He was said to have opted to travel to Boulder City by road and escaped the air disaster, that claimed the lives of four others.
