Kobe Bryant, star of the Los Angeles Lakers died today in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.

The 41-year-old basketball player was flying in his private helicopter with four other passengers when it crashed and burst into flames amid foggy conditions shortly before 10 a.m.

Bryant was one of 5 people who died when the helicopter they were in crashed on a hillside in Calabasas, California. Among the victims was Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter Gianna.

The accident occurred near Las Virgenes Road, south of Agoura Road, according to a watch commander for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The helicopter took off from Orange County, where Bryant lived.

Bryant is a former NBA basketball star who spent his 20-season career entirely with the Los Angeles Lakers. He is also the third all-time scorer in the NBA and won five NBA championships. In 2016, Bryant retired from the NBA, and in his final game he set yet another record for the organization.

Bryant was born on August 23, 1978, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but lived in Italy, where his father played basketball, for most of his childhood. In 1996, Bryant joined the NBA right after graduating from high school.

Bryant was married to his wife Vanessa Bryant and has four children with her: Bianka, Gianna, Natalia, and Capri, their youngest child they had in June.
