Millions of people are trying to keep their memories of Kobe Bryant alive following his tragic death alongside his 13-year-old daughter GiGi. Just last month, some Newport Beach California residents experienced their very own Kobe moment when he helped people during a car crash.
Kobe Bryant was near his home when a car crash occurred right in front of where his car was in Newport Beach, California. While other motorists just drove through the collision, Bryant decided to step out of his car and assist the victims of the crash.
