Alan Brown, CEO of Rentokil Initial, has told the Daily Mail that Matthew Wood, who was killed yesterday in a helicopter crash in London, was "a warm and generous man:"
We can confirm that our Rentokil Initial colleague, Matt Wood, was fatally injured in this morning’s helicopter crash as he was walking to our office in Vauxhall.
Matt was 39 years old and had worked for Rentokil as an administrative team leader since 2003.
Matt was well known to all of us who visit the Vauxhall office, including myself. He was in every respect a warm and generous man and a cornerstone of our team in Vauxhall.
We extend our deepest sympathy to Matt’s family and to our colleagues in Vauxhall who, though safely evacuated, will be deeply affected by this tragic accident.
Two men were killed after a helicopter collided with a high-rise crane in London and plunged more than 700 ft to the streets below.
The pilot of the helicopter which crashed had thousands of hours of flying experience including for films such as Die Another Day.
