RadarOnline.com has obtained underwater images of the helicopter in which the billionaire, his daughter Kameron, and five other people died in a crash off the coast of the Bahamas just minutes after take-off.

As readers know, Bahamian officials confirmed a helicopter took off from Big Grand Cay around 2 a.m. on Thursday, July 4, and was reported missing when it didn't arrive at its intended destination in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The aircraft was later found overturned in 16 feet of water two miles off the island in the Abacos. Seven bodies were retrieved at the scene, including Cline and his daughter.

Following the tragic news, West Virginia Governor Jim Justice announced the accident in a series of tweets.

“Today we lost a WV superstar and I lost a very close friend,” Justice tweeted. “Our families go back to the beginning of the Cline empire – Pioneer Fuel. Chris Cline built an empire and on every occasion was always there to give. What a wonderful, loving and giving man.”

Cline, who made a fortune operating coal mining facilities and was the founder of Foresight Energy, died hours before his 61st birthday on July 5th. He leaves behind three children: two sons and a daughter.
