The world, especially, the sporting fraternity has been hit hard by the death of American basketball legend Kobe Bryant.

As earlier reported by YEN.com.gh, Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash at Calabasas in California on Sunday, January 26, 2020.

Even more heartbreaking has been the fact that he died with his 13-year-old Gianni Maria who was on the helicopter with him.

While the deaths of Kobe and his daughter have dominated news headlines, they were not the people who suffered the unfortunate fate.

There were seven other people on the helicopter including the pilot putting the total number of deaths at nine.

Details and photos of all the nine people who were aboard the chopper have been released on American television.

The details as sighted by YEN.com.gh, show Kobe and Gianna were not the only family members to have died.
