Basketball player Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna's tragic death in a helicopter crash left everyone numb. On January 28, Kobe and his daughter along with a few others were flying to Thousand Oaks for a tournament and unfortunately, amid heavy fog, their helicopter met with a crash. All the passengers on-board were reported to be dead. Now, after four months of their demise, the autopsy report of all the deceased has been released.
As reported by BBC, the autopsy reports were posted on the website of the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner office. As per the report, "the cause of death for all nine victims was ruled as blunt trauma." It further read, "The manner of death was certified as an accident".
