Former Los Angeles Lakers star and NBA legend Kobe Bryant has died in Calabasas following a fatal helicopter crash, according to TMZ.

Kobe was traveling with at least 4 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 Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department posted on Twitter that five people were confirmed dead in the crash, but did not give any names.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Bryant, a Philadelphia native and Lower Merion High School product, was one of the great stars in NBA history. He won four NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers, where he played his entire 20-season pro career, including against the 76ers in 2001. He was the 2008 NBA Most Valuabe player, a 15-time All-Star and a two-time scoring champion.

In 2016, Bryant retired from the NBA, and in his final game he set yet another record for the organization.

Bryant was married to his wife Vanessa Bryant and has four children with her: Bianka, Gianna, Natalia, and Capri, their youngest child they had in June.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

This is a breaking story. It will be updated.

  1. Hi there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us
    so I came to look it over. I’m definitely enjoying the information.
    I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers!
    Fantastic blog and wonderful design.

  2. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. Pretty nice post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wished to mention that I have
    really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing for
    your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!
