NTSB investigators will be collecting evidence all week from the Southern California helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, as well as seven other people. Why is it taking so long? The scene is said to be the size of almost two football fields.
On top of that, it's in steep, rugged terrain with aircraft parts spread on both sides of a hill above Calabasas. As far as progress, drones have begun mapping the wreckage and three of the nine bodies were recovered. So far, weather is considering to be the most likely cause of the crash.
A dual engine failure is considered by experts to be highly unlikely, what’s already known is that the chopper was flying low in foggy weather. Still, it's only one possible cause being explored. On a related note, the NTSB's first report is expected next week, but in the meantime, witnesses are being asked to send in any pictures of footage they have of the area at the time of the crash.
