Kobe Bryant, one of the NBA’s all-time greatest players whose international stardom transcended basketball was known to travel frequently by helicopter to avoid Los Angeles’ infamous traffic, dating to his playing days, unfortunately, his Sikorsky S-76 chopper went down in foggy weather on Sunday morning in Calabasas, California, about 40 miles (65 kilometer) northwest of central Los Angeles, sparking a brush fire and there were no survivors.
Kobe Bryant along with his 13-year-old daughter and seven others on board was killed in that crash and the cause of the crash was unknown.
However, ride-hailing companies that have helicopter shuttle service or intent to have helicopter shuttle service should be concern about this copter crash, how safe is the life of their customers, precaution is very important so that such incident shouldn’t happen, having helicopter-hailing services in Africa is a welcome development but we should be so concern about safety.
An investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board could take months to know the cause of the Kobe copter crash, maybe in Africa, that could take years. May God give grace to the family to be bear the unfortunate loss.
