Officials with the National Transportation Safety Board and the LA County Sheriff's Office provided an update in the investigation into a helicopter crash that killed NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and seven others.

The NTSB called the crash a "high energy impact," based on the descent rate of the helicopter. They said the helicopter did not have a terrain awareness warning system and missed clearing the top of the hill by 20 to 30 feet.

The L.A. County Sheriff's Office also confirmed the identities of at least four of those killed, including Bryant, after the information was released by the coroner.

Officials said the investigation is still ongoing and they are trying to determine how the crash occurred.

Sad.

I'm glad that she called out the FAA for being presented with recommendations that could of saved lives but were never incorporated.

This women, the official, is very professional, very good interviews. Good to know we have people, like her, on the teams managing these tragic accidents. Has to be stressful. Good job, well done - in her “communications” capacity.

I am not a big fan of basketball but I admire Kobe eversince. When I heard the news, my heart breaks. I cried everytime I watch videos from the news. Its difficult to accept. He is an Icon. He inspires many Filipinos when he visited Phillippines 6x just to show his support to all those who love basketball.
RIP to Kobe and Gigi and to all who died in the crash. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

People gotta stop blaming the pilot no one knows wat happened. Everyone died on that helicopter including the pilot, he can’t defend himself or explain wat happened.

The FAA rejected the recommendations. No surprise. The FAA simply promotes and represents the manufacturers now.

I think something good is going to come out of this tragedy, all I hear from people is how they will reach out to loved ones or take time out for family. Because this was a shock to the world! Even Shaq stated that he is going to” take time out in his life”
