NBA Basketball Star Kobe Bryant Has Reportedly Died In A Helicopter Crash
Five people were killed when the helicopter crashed in Calabasas, outside Los Angeles.
Basketball legend Kobe Bryant was among five people killed Sunday in a helicopter crash outside Los Angeles, multiple news outlets confirmed.
The helicopter crashed Sunday morning in Calabasas, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said. All five people on board were killed, and the investigation is ongoing.
The crash took place around 10 a.m. in the hills of Calabasas, northeast of Los Angeles. When the helicopter crashed, it sparked a brushfire in the area.
Bryant retired from the NBA in 2016 as one of the top scoring players of all time. Just on Saturday, his No. 3 spot was taken by LeBron James.
Bryant shared a message of support in what would be his final tweet.
