Kobe Bryant's wife Vanessa Bryant just filed a lawsuit against the company who owned the helicopter, claiming the aircraft should have NEVER been attempting to fly in such bad weather conditions, and the pilot took a risk that cost her husband and daughters their lives.
According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Bryant is suing Island Express, saying this specific helicopter was only able to fly under conditions where the pilot is able to navigate their surroundings visually. The aircraft was NOT, however, equipped with technology that would allow it to navigate in an environment with no visibility such as heavy fog.
As we reported, at the time of the crash, the fog in the area was very low and thick. It appears the pilot lost all visibility before the accident.
