GUATEMALA CITY (AP) - Guatemalan officials say one of the country's richest men, textile mogul and hotel owner Joe Habie, has died in a helicopter crash.
They say he was the only person on board a helicopter that crashed into a park Friday afternoon. A student in the park was injured, apparently when the helicopter exploded after crashing.
The country's National Institute of Forensic Sciences confirms Habie's death. It says his body had been identified by relatives.
The 55-year-old Habie owned one of Guatemala's most important textile companies and also the five-star Tikkal Futura hotel.
