LOS ANGELES – Fans of Kobe Bryant wept, prayed and remembered the basketball legend outside his second home at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.

Aviation Expert Ed Booth who has been analyzing data from the crash, including images from the crash site, said this was a case of high-speed impact into the ground.

“When it struck the ground, it was either out of control, or the pilot was somehow disoriented or there was some kind of mechanical malfunction that rendered the helicopter uncontrollable,” Booth said.
