This is the hellish aftermath of the California helicopter crash that killed basketball icon Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter and as many as seven others Sunday.
Emergency workers can be seen sifting through the smoldering wreckage of the Sikorsky S-76 helicopter in this grim photo from the scene of the crash in the hills of Calabasas.
The craft plummeted from the sky around 10 a.m. local time amid foggy conditions, killing everyone aboard, among them Bryant, 41.
Also aboard was one of Bryant’s four daughters, 13-year-old Gianna, a promising hoopster in her own right, according to multiple reports.
The flames sparked a brush fire, at first cutting emergency responders off from the wreck, according to reports.
Charred vegetation can be seen ringing the crash site.

Witnesses on the ground describe what they saw and heard as the plane crashed.
Many fans are still struggling with the devastating news. My heart goes out to his wife and Gianna’s mother. I think about her and how hard this day must be for her and all of the survivors who lost loved ones.
Please keep these people in your prayers.
