Celebrities Share Tributes To American Basketball Player Kobe Bryant And His 13 Year Old Daughter

The accident claimed the lives of 9 people on board

American basketball player Kobe Bryant and his 13 year old daughter Gianna have died in a helicopter crash in LA.

The helicopter crashed into a hillside in Calabasas on Sunday morning, which claimed the lives of 9 people on board.

Speaking at a news conference last night LA County Sheriff said:

“It’s a logistical nightmare in a sense because the crash site itself is not easily accessible,”

The effort to recover the victims’ bodies has begun, but authorities have stated that it may take a few days.

“We’re doing everything we can to confirm identifications and give closure to the families involved.”

Kobe and his daughter were traveling to a basketball game which Gianna was set to take part in that afternoon.

Celebrity friends and fans of the singer have been taking to social media to share their shock and sadness on hearing the news.
