Among those was 40-year-old Jessica Simpson, who updated her Instagram page with a warm landscape picture she claimed to have been taken moments after the tragic news broke the net.

The picture portrayed a beautiful scenery from the Calabasas and was reportedly taken by her husband, Eric Johnson moments after the crash. The heartwarming photo came equipped with an emotional caption,

Jessica didn't forget about the families left behind by those who also lost their lives during the crash as the caption reached out to families of the deceased by sending them prayers and love.

According to Scott Daehlin, a 61-year-old man who witnessed the crash, the helicopter was flying low as though attempting to land.

The decision was a sound one as the late father was able to balance family time without compromising the time his craft demanded.

The aircraft reportedly made impact rotors first at exactly 9:44 a.m., the impact was followed by an explosion that automatically canceled out any chance of survival.

Bryant, in the year 2018, had initially started nursing the idea of employing helicopters as a means of travel within the country to spend more time with his four daughters.

Speaking in an interview, Bryant talked about how he would often get pinned down in traffic and how it was keeping him from some quality time with his daughters. He said,

"Traffic started getting really, really bad, and I was sitting in traffic and I wound up missing like a school play, because I was sitting in traffic."

The decision was a sound one as the late father was able to balance family time without compromising the time his craft demanded.

Among those who died alongside Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, were Payton and Sarah Chester, Ara Zobayan, John Altobelli, Keri Altobelli, Alyssa Altobelli, and Christina Mauser.
