Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, 41, who led the team to five NBA championships in his 20-year career with the franchise, and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, were among nine people who were killed Sunday morning when the helicopter they were in crashed amid foggy conditions and burst into flames in the hilly terrain of Calabasas, Calif. 11:50 p.m.
Coroner’s officials worked to recover victims’ remains Monday from the hillside outside Los Angeles where a helicopter carrying Kobe Bryant and eight others crashed in weather so foggy that local police departments had grounded their own choppers. 3:24 p.m.
