US basketball legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna are among nine people killed in a helicopter crash in the city of Calabasas, California. Bryant and Gianna were travelling in a private helicopter to a basketball practice when it came down and burst into flames.
The LA county sheriff said there were no survivors. According to authorities in Los Angeles County, it could take several days to recover bodies from the crash site, as the helicopter crashed in rough terrain.
Bryant was on his way to the academy to coach his daughter when the helicopter crashed, according to two law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to divulge details of the ongoing investigations.
The academy was hosting the Mamba Cup Tournament Series, a series of tournaments for boys and girls’ basketball teams from the third through eighth grades. All the games were canceled after the news of Bryant’s death became public.
