Kobe Bryan and Gigi Bryant’s Autopsy Report Sketch leaked?
A helicopter crash in January 2020 left nine people dead, including NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna.
He and his daughter were traveling in a chopper not long after takeoff to Gianna’s basketball game at his Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, California when the chopper crashed in cloudy weather. According to the reports, The helicopter crashed and caught fire at 9:45 a.m. in Calabasas, which is located about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. All eight occupants including Bryant, his daughter, and the other seven died upon impact.
Recent revelations about Kobe Bryant and his late daughter’s autopsy report and the appearance of an accident image on social media upset users. The leaked sketch depicts Kobe’s post-crash physical condition, and it is upsetting to see what he and his 13-year-old daughter endured. However, his daughter does not have to suffer much compare to him which shows that Kobe died protecting her daughter.
Besides that, the county is being sued for an undisclosed amount of money by Vanessa Bryant, the widow of the NBA legend and mother of Gigi, and Chris Chester, an Irvine financial adviser who lost his wife and 13-year-old daughter in the collision, for negligence and invasion of privacy in relation to pictures taken at the scene. The county asserts that every photo taken by the firefighters and sheriff’s deputies was quickly destroyed, is gone forever, and was never made public.
Done Nothing Wrong
In testimony of a Los Angeles County firefighter, images taken at the scene of the fatal helicopter crash were also shared during cocktail hour at an awards ceremony a month after the crash, which led to the deaths of NBA legend Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and seven others.
During his testimony on Friday, a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy, one of the first officers on the scene, claimed that he “didn’t do anything wrong” when, at the request of another deputy at the command post, he took 25 pictures at the scene, some of which included close-ups of body parts, and sent them to other officers.
As a result, Vanessa Bryants filed a lawsuit against the county for the gruesome pictures taken by first responders at the scene of the helicopter crash that killed her husband due to the possibility that images of their family members’ broken bodies will one day appear on the internet due to, as one of their attorneys said this week to the jury, “digital lives forever.” She claimed that as a result, she still goes through emotional pain.
