It was also later reported by Wojnarowski that alongside the death of Bryant was his daughter Gianna and another daughter and her parent, in addition to the pilot and four others. They were all being transported to  the daughters’ away basketball game on the flight.

Bryant was 41 and his daughter was 13. The news is absolutely tragic to all fans of sports and obviously the Bryant Family.

Rest In Peace, Kobe. We are praying for the Bryant family.
