Original Story:

NBA legend Kobe Bryant has shockingly passed away after a helicopter crash in Calabasas on Sunday morning.

The helicopter was Kobe’s private one that he had used to travel for years. Emergency personnel responded but no one on board survived. Witnesses say they heard the helicopter’s engine sputter before going down and breaking into  fire.

Kobe is survived by his wife Vanessa and their 4 daughters, Gianna, Natalia and Bianca and their newborn Capri.

This crash comes the day after LeBron James passes Kobe for third place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.

As of 10:39 p.m., Kobe was active on social media congratulating LeBron on the achievement. During the game, LeBron could be seen wearing “Mamba 4 Life” and “8/24 KB” on his sneakers, giving respect to the 18-time All-Star, former Laker.

This is a hard one…

RIP to the Legend.
