Kobe Bryant Dead In Helicopter Crash
by Scott Faith
Basketball superstar Kobe Bryant was reportedly killed in a helicopter crash in California earlier today.
Initial reporting indicates that Kobe was one of four people killed when his private helicopter caught fire and then crashed. I’m sure we’ll get additional details in the days to come.
If being in the military and running a popular blog has taught me anything, it’s that first reports are almost always wrong, and the people absolutely LOVE to run with a good celebrity hoax. I’m hoping that is the case here, for the sake of Kobe, his family, friends, and millions of fans. However, based on the widespread reporting about this incident (see below), it seems like this one is real.
