All significant pieces of the helicopter that crashed with Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others on board have been recovered from the wreckage area, the National Transportation Safety Board said Friday.
“Examination of the main and tail rotor assemblies found damage consistent with powered rotation at the time of impact,” federal safety officials said in a release. “The initial point of impact consisted of highly fragmented cabin and cockpit debris.”
Officials said the main wreckage was found about 127 feet from impact.
The cause of the crash is still being investigated.
