Basketball Legend Kobe Bryant Has Died In A Helicopter Crash

I have some really sad news to tell you – Basketball Legend Kobe Bryant Has Died.

Update: It was now confirmed his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna was also on the helicopter and has died.

Now, before you think this might be some sort of hoax or cruel joke, unfortunately, it’s not.

TMZ first broke the news that Kobe Bryant was among 5 passengers that died during a helicopter crash on a hillside in the Calabasas area. It is reportedly, Kobe’s private helicopter that went down.

News has also been released that Vanessa Bryant (Kobe’s wife) was not on the helicopter. No word about his daughters.

In case you are unaware, Kobe Bryant was a professional basketball player. He played his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the NBA.

Kobe is survived by his wife Vanessa and their four daughters. My heart just breaks for his family.

Today is such a sad day for everyone. RIP Kobe.
