It was 4am in the morning in the Philippines when I saw the news on social media. :(
TMZ Sports first confirmed it on a tweet:
BREAKING: Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas Sunday morning. Kobe was traveling with at least 3 other people in his private helicopter when it went down. Emergency personnel responded, but nobody on board survived. https://t.co/EG9YHW07hv pic.twitter.com/FkgfyvHlnc— TMZ Sports (@TMZ_Sports) January 26, 2020
