Kobe Bryant: Investigators confirm salvage of all nine victims

The shock is still deep. A helicopter crash near Los Angeles killed nine people last Sunday. These include the NBA legend Kobe Bryant (1978-2020) and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna. The Los Angeles judicial and administrative district has now confirmed that the rescue of all victims has been completed.

As the US portals "TMZ" and "Us Weekly" quote from the statement, emergency personnel could only have recovered three bodies on Sunday, the day of the crash. A day later, the search for the other six occupants of the helicopter continued. "A short time later, their bodies were found, removed from the crash site, and handed over to forensics." Investigators are currently conducting investigations and "actively identifying the deceased".

The occupants of the machine

In addition to Bryant and daughter Gianna, Gianna's basketball teammates Payton Chester and mother and Alyssa Altobelli and both parents were on board the machine, according to US reports. Basketball coach Christina Mauser and pilot Ara Zobayan also lost their lives in the accident, the background of which has still not been clearly clarified.
