Three top executives at the forthcoming Trump’s Taj Mahal casino die in a freak helicopter crash. Trump later blames his financial struggles on their deaths, even though the casino opens over six months later.

Five people, including three high-level executives of Donald J. Trump’s three casinos in Atlantic City, were killed yesterday when their helicopter crashed in pine woodlands on the Garden State Parkway near Forked River, N.J.

Moments before the helicopter plunged into the parkway’s wooded median from 2,800 feet at 1:40 P.M., its main overhead four-blade rotor and its tail rotor broke off the body of the craft, the state police said…

Among those killed were Stephen F. Hyde, 43 years old, chief executive of the Trump casinos; Mark Grossinger Etess, 38, president and chief operating officer of the Trump Taj Mahal casino hotel, and Jonathan Benanav, 33, executive vice president of the Trump Plaza casino hotel.
