A video has emerged on social media showing the moment helicopter carrying ex-NBA star, Kobe Bryant, crashed in Los Angeles County suburb of Calabasas, United States, on Sunday.

The helicopter appeared to have hit the summit of the mountain, before rolling and crashing in the area. Visibility was said not to have been good enough because of fog.

Bryant, who retired from basketball in 2016 after a 20-year successful career, died in the crash along with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, who was travelling with her father for a game.

Reports say the helicopter, a Sikorsky S-76, which belonged to him, had seven other passengers on board, aside Bryant and his daughter.

He was an 18-time NBA All Star, and was considered to be one of the greatest basketball player of all time.
