BREAKING: NBA Star, Kobe Bryant and his daughter dies in a helicopter crash

Basketball star Kobe Bryant was killed Sunday morning when his private helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California along with four other people.

Kobe played for the Los Angeles Lakers for 20 years and is considered one of the greatest basketball players of all time.

He won five NBA championships, was an 18-time All-Star, was the NBA’s Most Valuable Player in the 2007-2008 season and is fourth on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.

“The aircraft went down in a remote field off Las Virgenes around 10:00 this morning. Nobody on the ground was hurt. The FAA and NTSB are investigating,” the city of Calabasas wrote on Twitter.

Bryant was drafted into the NBA at age 17 and stayed with the Lakers for his whole career — joining what ESPN called “an exclusive club” of players to spend two decades with the same team.

Bryant retired in 2016.

He and Gianna are survived by his wife, Vanessa and three other daughters, Natalia, Bianca and  Capri who was born last summer.
