NBA legend Kobe Bryant was seen comforting the victims of a car crash that took place in California just weeks before he and his daughter died in a chopper crash.
Following an accident in Newport Beach, California, the 41-year-old basketball player was seen helping people involved in the crash by talking to them and comforting them until the emergency services arrived.
As seen in the TMZ video, Kobe stopped his car in the middle of the road and crossed the street to talk to the people involved in the crash.
“That’s Kobe Bryant in the pink over the top of that silver car. That’s his Range with the blinkers on,” the narrator in the video said.
Previously, in 2018, Bryant was also seen assisting another individual who got hit by a driver who ran the red light.
After the crash, which also occurred in Newport Beach, the sportsman exited his car and offered to take pictures as evidence in the victim’s place because their phone got broken.
The good deeds of the 41-year-old NBA legend have once again came to light following the sudden death of him and his daughter who got involved in a chopper crash.
Both the father and his daughter, Gianna, have tragically passed away as their helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California, on Sunday, January 26.
To pay a tribute to the Bryant family, masses of people have taken to the Los Angeles Staples Center cladded in basketball jerseys and caps.
The mourners, who were struck by the sudden death of their beloved sportsman, were also seen assembling in other places and cities including New York’s Madison Square Garden.
Fans also paid a tribute to the 41-year-old NBA legend just outside Thousand Oaks’ Mamba Academy in California where Bryant, who founded the arena, was allegedly on his way to when the crash occurred.
Meanwhile, millions of people, including thousands of prominent figures, politicians, and celebrities, have taken to social media to pay their respects to Mr. Bryant and his daughter.
“It’s another guy that I looked up to when I was in grade school and high school. Seeing him come straight out of high school, he is someone that I used as inspiration,” Lakers’ LeBron James said in his tribute.
“It was like, wow. Seeing a kid, 17 years old, come into the NBA and trying to make an impact on a franchise, I used it as motivation.
“He helped me before he even knew of me because of what he was able to do. So, just to be able to, at this point of my career, to share the same jersey that he wore, be with this historical franchise and just represent the purple and gold, it’s very humbling.”
