LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - On or about 17:45 UTC, a Sikorsky helicopter crashes in Calabasas, north of Los Angeles, CA.

SoCal tried to contact the helicopter a few seconds before it crashes as it was flying too low (too close to the terrain)

During the live ATC, "N72EX You're still too low for flight following at this time." At this time, pilots of the helicopter struggle to avoid crashing to the ground.



"VFR conditions, 1500'; 2EX, 34.2" These were the last communication between the helicopter and ATC as they crash.

Onboard was Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna along with 7 other people including a baseball coach.
