NBA legend, Kobe Bryant, has died in a helicopter crash in California.
The 41-year-old former Los Angeles Lakers star was reportedly in his private chopper when the aircraft dropped from the sky.
According to The Los Angeles Times. the crash occurred around 10:00am local time “amid foggy conditions in the hills overlooking Calabasas, with the chopper sparking a bush fire on impact that hampered initial rescue efforts.”
Bryant was reportedly one of five people in the helicopter at the time, according to TMZ.
No survivors were discovered.
18-time All-Star Kobe spent 20 years at the LA Lakers winning five championships.
Until a few hours ago, Kobe was the third-highest scorer in NBA history, a position he relinquished to Lebron James.
Continuing to move the game forward @KingJames. Much respect my brother
