WATCH: Vanessa Bryant Visiting The Kobe Bryant Crash Site – The Statue Is Now Gone 4K

Two years after the helicopter crash that claimed the lives of Kobe Bryant and eight other people, a statue of the basketball star and his 13-year-old daughter was erected at the Calabasas crash site.



Fans gathered there Wednesday to pay their respects on the anniversary of the tragic event, leaving flowers and notes by the statue.




The 4-feet-tall monument, sculpted by artist Dan Medina, features Bryant in his Lakers jersey with his arm around Gianna, who is also in a basketball uniform holding a ball. Gianna, who went by Gigi, was also killed in the 2020 crash.
