NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — Billionaire coal entrepreneur Chris Cline, who worked his way out of West Virginia’s underground mines to amass a fortune and become a major Republican donor, was killed in a helicopter crash along with six other Americans, his lawyer’s office confirmed on Friday.

Cline and his 22-year-old daughter Kameron were on board the aircraft when it went down Thursday, said Joe Carey, a spokesman for attorney Brian Glasser, who planned to issue a family statement later Friday.

Leaders of industry, government and academics in West Virginia eulogized Cline as a coal industry visionary and a generous giver.

“He was a very farsighted entrepreneur,” said Bill Raney, president of the West Virginia Coal Association. “Chris was just one of those folks who had the Midas touch.”

Forbes estimated his fortune at $1.8 billion this year. Cline donated heavily to President Donald Trump and other Republicans. Federal records show he gave the president’s inaugural committee $1 million in 2017 and spread thousands more to conservative groups as well as committees representing prominent Republicans such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

Bahamas Police Supt. Shanta Knowles told The Associated Press that they began searching when police received a report from Florida that Cline’s helicopter failed to arrive in Fort Lauderdale as expected on Thursday.

The bodies of the four women and three men were recovered and taken to the capital in Nassau to be officially identified, Knowles said. The helicopter was still in the water, and based on preliminary information, she did not believe there had been a distress call before it went down.

A Royal Bahamas Police Force statement said authorities and local residents found the crash site two miles off Big Grand Cay, group of private islands Cline owned.

Knowles said that preliminary information suggests there was no distress call before it went down. The helicopter was still in the water Friday, and She said a specialized ship was coming from Florida with equipment to pull the helicopter from the water.

Aviation safety investigators in the Bahamas are working to determine the cause, said Jaime Nixon, an aviation safety analyst for the Air Accident Investigation Department of the Bahamas. The Bahamas Civil Aviation Authority told the Federal Aviation Administration that the Augusta AW139 helicopter was located in the water at about 7 p.m. on Thursday.

Cline started in the coal industry at 22 years old, working in an underground mine in southern West Virginia, as his father and grandfather did, according to a biography on one of his companies’ websites.

He quickly moved into management roles and soon formed his own energy development company, the Cline Group, which grew into one of the country’s top coal producers.

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice tweeted that he “lost a very close friend” in Cline, “a WV superstar.”

“Chris Cline built an empire and on every occasion was always there to give. What a wonderful, loving, and giving man,” Justice tweeted.

Cline also donated $5 million to support West Virginia’s Marshall University Sports Medicine Institute and another $3.5 million for the school’s athletics foundation.

“Our hearts are heavy,” said Marshall University President Jerome A. Gilbert. “Chris’s generosity to our research and athletics programs has made a mark on Marshall University and our students for many years to come.”

The coal tycoon Chris Cline, a major Republican donor, has died in a helicopter crash outside Big Grand Cay, a string of islands he owned in the Bahamas.

In tweets, Donald Trump expressed sympathy for the loss of a “great businessman and energy expert” and said Cline was “a wonderful man and great Republican!”

Cline and his 22-year-old daughter, Kameron, were on board the aircraft with five others when it went down on Thursday, a spokesman for Cline’s attorney Brian Glasser said on Friday.

The death of the 60-year-old magnate led to eulogies from industry leaders, government officials and academics, who described Cline as a visionary generous with his $1.8bn fortune.

Bill Raney, president of the West Virginia Coal Association, said Cline began working in the mines of southern West Virginia at a young age, rising through the ranks of his father’s company. He formed his own energy development business, the Cline Group, which grew into one of the country’s top coal producers.

When he thought mining in the Appalachian region was drying up, he bought reserves in the Illinois Basin in a smart investment in high sulfur coal, according to the website of Missouri-based Foresight Energy, a company he formed.

Cline sold most of his interest in Foresight for $1.4bn and then put $150m into a metallurgical coal mine in Nova Scotia, according to a 2017 Forbes article titled Chris Cline Could Be The Last Coal Tycoon Standing.

The piece captured his opulence: a mansion in West Virginia with a manmade lake big enough to waterski on and a white stallion stud name Fabio. A gun collection so deep federal officials would take stock once a month. A 200ft yacht called Mine Games.

In the piece, Cline defended coal and waved off some scientific evidence for climate change.

“People deserve the cheapest energy they can get,” he said. “Tell the poor in India and China that they don’t deserve to have reliable, affordable electricity.”

To that effect, he also spoke about solar panels, wind turbines and Tesla batteries on Big Grand Cay, saying: “Where it makes sense, I’m absolutely for it.”

He gave Trump’s inaugural committee $1m and shared thousands more with conservative groups and Republican figures such as Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and the Florida senator Marco Rubio, according to federal records.

Cline gave at least $8.5m to Marshall University in West Virginia.

“Our hearts are heavy,” said Marshall’s president, Jerome A Gilbert. “Chris’s generosity to our research and athletics programs has made a mark on Marshall University and our students for many years to come.”

Authorities began searching for the helicopter after police received a report from Florida that it failed to arrive in Fort Lauderdale as expected on Thursday, Bahamas police superintendent Shanta Knowles said.

The bodies of four women and three men were taken to the Bahamian capital, Nassau, said Delvin Major, chief investigator for the Bahamas’ Air Accident Investigation Department. The Augusta AW139 helicopter was still in the water. Major did not believe there had been a distress call. The cause of the crash was undetermined, officials said.

A Royal Bahamas police force statement said authorities and locals found the aircraft two miles off Big Grand Cay, which Cline bought in 2014.

Big Grand Cay comprises about 213 acres over about half a dozen narrow islands. Real estate agent John Christie, who sold the land, said it was developed by the late Robert Abplanalp, inventor of the modern aerosol spray valve and a friend of Richard Nixon. The property became known as an escape for the disgraced president in the 1970s.
