Kobe Bryant, daughter killed in helicopter crash

Kobe Bryant and one of his daughters were killed Sunday morning in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California. Bryant, 41, and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Bryant were en route to the Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks for a basketball game. Gianna was supposed to play in the game, with Bryant coaching. The helicopter crash, which occurred about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, started a brush fire and killed all nine people aboard.
