I know this is not a theme park story, but it is a story about a person near and dear to my heart which is why I am reporting it here.
Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna died in a helicopter crash this morning in Calabasas, California about 1 min away from my former community. I grew up loving and watching the Lakers because of Kobe. I still watch and cheer them on to this day because of what he did for me and the team. Hard work, dedication, championships and continued ambition have paved the way and inspiration for other great NBA players such as Lebron James, Kevin Durant, and Steph Curry.
I can’t even imagine how Vanessa and the rest of the family is feeling at this moment in time.
No cause of the crash has been determined yet, but it was reported that the engine began sputtering before the copter went down. It was also very foggy last night and this morning which definitely could have contributed to the crash. Prayers to his family and everyone involved.
