    Default Kobe Bryant killed in helicopter crash

    https://www.tmz.com/2020/01/26/kobe-...-in-calabasas/

    Kobe Bryant died in a helicoper crash in Calabasas Sunday morning ... TMZ Sports has confirmed.
    Kobe was traveling with at least 3 other people in his private helicopter when it went down. A fire broke out. Emergency personnel responded, but nobody on board survived. 5 people are confirmed dead. We're told Vanessa Bryant was not among those on board.
    The cause of the crash is under investigation.
    Kobe has famously used a helicopter to travel for years -- dating back to when he played for the Lakers. He was known for commuting from Newport Beach, CA to the STAPLES Center in DTLA in his Sikorsky S-76 chopper.
    KB is survived by his wife Vanessa, and their four daughters -- Gianna, Natalia and Bianca and their newborn Capri.
    Kobe has recently been spotted out at NBA games with his daughter Gianna -- a rising star basketball player herself. Their youngest daughter, Capri, was just born in June 2019.
    Kobe is widely considered one of the greatest NBA players of all time -- making 18 All-Star teams during his 20 year career with the Lakers. He was a first-round pick in the 1996 draft, winning 5 NBA championships, 2 NBA Finals MVPs and he was the league MVP in '08.
    The Lakers famously retired both of Kobe's jerseys, number 8 and 24 ... the only player in team history to receive that honor.
    Kobe's accomplishments stand far outside of the basketball world. He won an Oscar for his short film, "Dear Basketball," in 2018.
    Story developing ...

    I just saw this on a local (to me) twitter account and thought they were joking at first, especially since I saw their source was TMZ. What the hell? But other outlets are picking up the story now.

    I feel terrible for his children. 41 is so damn young. Rest in peace, Kobe.

    I just saw this while watching the pro bowl. Huge shock! They just had a baby this past summer.

    To Bitter's post:

    I really, really hope that it wasn't one of his daughters. They've already confirmed that Vanessa wasn't on board.

    My heart goes out to his children and wife, but I'm also glad they weren't on board with him. That is just too young.

    @Nevan, how many daughters/children does he have? I assumed no children were on board because it listed the daughters in the survived by list.

    ABC reported that his kids were on board. I haven't seen that anywhere else.
