Basketball legend Kobe Bryant is dead.
Two sources confirmed to CNN he died in a helicopter crash today (Sunday).
At least five people were killed in the crash in Southern California.
This is aerial video of the crash site.
Authorities say it happened in Calabasas, about 30 miles west of Los Angeles.
Witnesses reported foggy weather and seeing the chopper going down quickly and then slamming into a hillside.
Then they saw it burst into flames.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says there are no survivors.
Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board are responding to the scene.
Bryant had eighteen All-Star games to his name.
That made him one of the best NBA players of all time.
Bryant was just 41 years old.
