Coroner identifies remains of Kobe Bryant, three others
 

 
For you denial folks or conspiracy theorists (even though I feel much of it is just still not wanting to believe and online bantering).

LOS ANGELES COUNTY, Calif. (KRON) — The coroner has positively identified four of the nine people who were k*lled in a helicopter crash in Calabasas on Sunday.

Crews located and recovered the nine bodies from the crash site Tuesday.

Through the use of fingerprints, investigators identified three men and one woman who were on the aircraft, according to the coroner’s office.

John Altobelli, DOB: 5/8/63
Kobe Bryant, DOB: 8/23/78
Sarah Chester, DOB: 6/29/74
Ara Zobayan, DOB: 1/2/70

Investigators are still working on identifying the five remaining victims.

The investigation into the crash is still ongoing.

While the department had not yet formally identified five other victims, relatives and acquaintances have identified them as Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter, Gianna; Sarah Chester’s 13-year-old daughter Payton; Altobelli’s wife, Keri, and daughter, Alyssa; and Christina Mauser, a girls’ basketball coach at a Southern California elementary school.

Determining what caused the crash will take months, federal investigators said at an afternoon news conference.

The helicopter descended for about a minute before crashing. It was traveling at more than 2,000 feet a minute when it hit the ground, “so we know that this was a high-energy impact crash,” but it appeared that the aircraft was in one piece when it struck the ground, the National Transportation Safety Board’s Jennifer Homendy said.

However, it is too soon to determine whether the pilot was still in control of the aircraft during that descent, she said.

The pilot was well-acquainted with the skies over Los Angeles and accustomed to flying celebrities.

Zobayan had spent thousands of hours ferrying passengers through one of the nation’s busiest air spaces and training students how to fly a helicopter. Friends and colleagues described him as skilled, cool and collected, the very qualities you want in a pilot.

His decision to proceed in deteriorating visibility, though, has experts and fellow pilots wondering if he flew beyond the boundaries of good judgment and whether pressure to get his superstar client where he wanted to go played a role in the crash.

So why did it look like the helicopter broke apart?

I'm just hoping that sh*t is a protocol and not what I think. They needed to use measures to identify them but relatives were able to confirm identities. I'm really hoping it wasn't that bad.

Hope they were all unconscious when they hit the ground. I would’ve thought fingerprints would be all burnt away. I bet Kobe kept Gigi calm while they exchange I love you’s. Ughhh life’s too fragile

I think it's the fact that it's hard to imagine that one of the greatest NBA players of all time got reduced to charred toast.

Sad and tragic all around, but at the speed and the impact of the crash and more than likely the tank full of gas in the chopper, yes, they would most definitely need finger prints to identify Kobe.

RIP to Kobe and everyone in that chopper
