Tragic. Him and several others.

Just heard about this. Apparently one of the other passengers was his 13 year-old daughter. Absolutely horrible.

Definitely shocking. 41, way too young to go.

RIP Kobe.

God dammit.

The loss of Bryant is horrible, but the death of a child is infinitely worse. What a nightmare for the rest of the family.

The Mamba was just a warrior. That guy could ball out. What a loss.

Kobe, his daughter, the pilot, another parent, and his/her daughter going to a girls’ tournament. Tragic for all families involved.

Just makes me sick. He was such a great competitor, such an amazing talent, and by all accounts, an even better father to his four girls. I am in shock and heartbroken for all of those that were close to Kobe and Gianna. My prayers go out to Vanessa and his remaining three girls.

RIP Kobe Bryant

Tragedy. No other word for it... I hope his wife and remaining daughters (what a horrible thing to even type, ugh) find the strength to cope with this loss.
