The helicopter crash, which killed the American basketball player Kobe Bryant, was the result of the actions of the pilot. This is reported by The Independent with reference to an investigation by the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).
The commission concluded that Ara Zobayan, who was in charge of the helicopter, lost his spatial orientation. Shortly before the collision with the hillside, the pilot told the controllers that he was gaining altitude, but in fact he went down. The reasons why Zobayan was disoriented will be established.
