RIP to retired Basketball star, Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant
TMZ reports that the 41-year old retired Basketball legend with his 13-year old daughter Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant and other passengers were traveling in a private helicopter just over the Calabasas when a fire incident aboard sent the aircraft into a diving spin from the sky and into a nearby mountain. The reports claim that no one survived the crash and as at press time, the real cause of the crash is yet to be unraveled.
Kobe Bryant played for 2 decades with the popular Los Angeles Lakers NBA team where he won 5 championships and made 18 All-star games altogether before he retired in 2016.
