Heartwarming Photos of Kobe Bryant with Daughter Gianna Marie. Both died Sunday in a helicopter crash.

NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter were among nine people killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, on Sunday, a source at the Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed to Your Content. Bryant was 41. Your Content was among the first to report the tragic accident that captivated the world Sunday. 

Bryant was on his way to a travel basketball game with his daughter Gianna Bryant, who was 13, when the helicopter crashed, sources told Your Content.

Those aboard the helicopter also included another player and parent and the pilot. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, there were no survivors. An investigation is ongoing.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported 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 shared four children: Bianka, Gianna, Natalia, and Capri, their youngest child they had in June.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
