Yesterday, a very sad event happened to the world at around 10 AM local time. A helicopter was spinning spirally towards the ground in Calabasas, California. Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna were on board. They were on their way to a travel basketball game for Gianna. The cause of the helicopter crash is still under investigation. It was believed initially that only 5 people were on board. But, later in the day they have proven that there were 9 passengers on board.
Kobe was doing a lot of good for this world. Such as having a training camp, giving back to the community, and being a good parent to his four daughters. He was a very loving person and showed a lot of dedication to the game, lots of close friends and family stated.
Kobe was honored multiple times through the Grammy’s, Pro Bowl, NBA games, and Tweets/Posts honoring him. They did 24 second shot clock violations to remember him in the NBA. Also did 8-second back court violation to honor his first number when he came into the NBA. Alicia Keys at the Grammy’s made a speech for Kobe during her performance. Tweets/Posts were all over the internet from celebrities to fans of him. Even people whom were not fans of him sent sorrow to his family. This was a pure tragic incident that you would not want to happen to anyone. This shows that you must value every second of life. Rest in Peace Kobe and Gianna Bryant.
