Who was Kobe Bryant!
Kobe Bean Bryant who was born on August 23, 1978, died in a helicopter crash on January 26, 2020. Kobe was an American professional basketball player.

How the legend “Kobe” died?
Kobe Bryant and his daughter Jianna along with seven other people were killed in a helicopter crash on January 26, 2020, near Los Angeles. Apparently, the pilot of the machine lost his orientation in a dense fog. On January 26, 2020, a Sikorsky S-76B helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California, near Los Angeles, while en route from John Wayne Airport to Camarillo Airport.
It is unclear what caused the crash, as the helicopter did not carry a flight data recorder or voice recorder in the cockpit, as aircraft of this type were not required to conform to FAA regulations. A subsequent autopsy failed to detect any traces of narcotics or alcohol in the pilot system, and preliminary findings from the National Transportation Safety Board indicated that there was no evidence of engine failure. Bryant’s death sparked many memories and tributes, including US President Donald Trump and former US Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.
