Sad if it’s true. So far only TMZ is the one reporting it…
Kobe Bryant died in a helicoper crash in Calabasas Sunday morning … TMZ Sports has confirmed.
Kobe was traveling with at least 3 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 cause of the crash is under investigation.
EDIT: An L.A. Times writer has confirmed it as well.
I can confirm that Kobe Bryant is among those dead in a helicopter crash. This is not a hoax. Just awful.
