A new report has emerged on Kobe Bryant’s death, as reports have it that three bodies have been recovered from the crash site.  

According to the reports by Evening Standard, the coroner’s office said the bodies were recovered on Sunday afternoon before darkness forced the search to be suspended on the crash scene of Kobe Bryant’s and eight others death.

Coroner’s officials are continuing to recover victims’ remains on Monday from the hillside outside Los Angeles where the helicopter crashed.

Kobe Bryant’s 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others, with the 41-year-old NBA legend, died in the helicopter crash in the city of Calabasas, California.

They were all travelling in a private helicopter when it crashed and burst into flames, according to reports.

In a statement, the City of Calabasas said it was “with great sadness that we learn of the death of Kobe Bryant and four others in a helicopter crash”.

“The aircraft went down in a remote field off Las Virgenes around 10:00 this morning. Nobody on the ground was hurt,” it added.

Eyewitnesses told news site TMZ they heard the helicopter’s engine sputtering before it went down.

The LA County Sheriff’s Department shared pictures from the scene of the accident, showing a fire truck and smoke emerging from the hills.

The US Federal Aviation Administration identified the crashed helicopter as a Sikorsky S-76. It said it was investigating the accident alongside the National Transportation Safety Board.

In an earlier report, the pilot of the helicopter was warned he was “too low” before the aircraft crashed into a California hillside, it emerged today.

Audio between the pilot and air traffic control revealed the efforts made to guide the aircraft before contact was lost in thick fog.
