The Los Angeles County Fire Department has planned to fire two firefighters and suspending the third because of their conducts at the Kobe Bryant’s helicopter crash site.

Kobe Bryant’s helicopter crashed back in January, 2020, when the pilot of the helicopter ignored his training and failed to take measures which would have otherwise avoided the tragedy. The helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California, where Kobe, his 13-year old daughter Gianna and 7 others lost their lives.

After the internal investigation on the firefighters’ conducts at the site was finished, two of the fighters received the letters from the department with “intention to discharge,” as their photographing of the crash site was confirmed.

Vanessa Bryant’s lawyer stated that in a document which was used to delay the trial that their actions “served no business necessity” and “only served to appeal to baser instincts and desires for what amounted to visual gossip.”

The third firefighter, who served as a media relations officer and had the duties to interact with the press, has been suspended. The identity of any of the firefighters is still undisclosed, and the spokesperson from the Fire Department, Capt. Ron Haralson, refused to give any statements to Revolt.
