As “TMZ Sports” reports, the death of Kobe Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter Gianna is confirmed. She was sitting with her father in the helicopter that crashed over California on Sunday morning.
Bryant’s wife Vanessa and the couple’s other three daughters were not on board.
According to US media reports, Bryant’s helicopter was on the way to his daughter’s basketball game. Among the dead, as TMZ knows from the closer circle of the basketball player, are also another player and a parent.
Gianna shared her father’s passion for basketball. In 2018, they visited several Lakers games together. Tomorrow at noon (2 p.m. local time), the authorities want to announce more details at a press conference.Deaths 2019These stars have left us.Volume 90%
The basketball star, who became one of the most successful players in NBA history with five championship titles, had an accident on Sunday morning at around 10 a.m. local time, according to the American portal “TMZ” . A total of five people are said to have been killed in the accident. Bryant’s wife Vanessa was not on board.
The foggy weather in the mountains was mentioned as a possible cause. The helicopter went up in flames immediately after the impact and triggered a bush fire, which made the work of the rescue workers more difficult.
From his beginnings in the league in 1996 until his career end in 2016, the “Black Mamba” played exclusively for the Los Angeles Lakers and became a club and league legend. His shirt numbers 8 and 24 are no longer assigned.
Bryant was only 41 years old. Together with his wife, he has four daughters. The youngest is only seven months old.
