He passed away one hour ago during a helicopter flight.
Rest in peace legend!
Much strength to his wife and kids!
I knew someone that was killed in a helicopter crash, those things are absolute death traps. Unlike a plane which can at least glide down, if something malfunctions in the choppers engine such as carb icing etc they literally drop out of the sky. There are techniques to slow down the decent to at least half stand a chance of survival but you are still dicing with death, same as motorbikes.
I read that his 13 year old daughter died too. Such a travesty
Hands down the most well liked and admired athlete in the world.
I think i read that his daughter was also in the helicopter.
I had the pleasure of watching him live and i wont forget that
His 13 year old daughter was amongst those that died according to recent reports.
Kids and wife were not among the other victims- according to local press. Crazy how you can be here one second and gone the next:/
Only his daughter according to TMZ, even luka donciç has posted a pic with her.
Yep, it makes you think, you can archive all the money, fame and everything in the world and suddenly you are just one more grave in the graveyard, this has affected me more than it should ( i was a huge Kobe fan, he was the one i was looking after when i started doing sports) i think i'll start saying to my loved ones each time that i can that i love them because you will never know when they wont be there anymore.
Shit, one of my idol when i was young.
Shits crazy . Why don’t these people have parachutes tho? If I had all that bread my ass wouldn’t board a plane,helicopter nothing without one
