Autopsy results of the victims of the crash that took the lives of Basketball player Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gigi Bryant, along with 6 other passengers and the pilot have been released by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office.
Kobe, his daughter, the pilot, and the other passengers on the plane died after the helicopter slammed onto a hillside at a high speed of 184 MPH on 26th January 2020 in Calabasas, California.
The autopsy documents reveal that Kobe and the other victims died of blunt trauma, but an outstanding takeaway from the autopsy results is that the pilot Ara Zobayan, was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol as toxicology tests came back negative.
“Toxicological testing did not detect the presence of alcohol or drugs of abuse. Substances tested for include: benzodiazepines, cocaine, fentanyl, heroin, marijuana, opioids, phencyclidine, and amphetamines.” the report by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office read.
