An autopsy revealed that Kobe Bryant ’s pilot had no drugs or alcohol in the system
The autopsy report released on Friday showed that there was no alcohol or drugs in the system of helicopter pilots carrying Kobe Bryant.
On January 26, the helicopter slammed into the slopes of Calabasas, causing all fatal injuries.
Bryant and seven others were killed in a car crash while en route to a youth basketball game.
The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office released a report describing the injuries suffered by some of the victims.
The injuries described included bone fractures, limb defects, and the smell of fuel remaining from burning clothing.
Kobe, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, pilot Ara Zobayan and others were marked as blunt.
However, reports on Kobe showed that there is a drug methylphenidate in his system.
Methylphenidate is commonly sold under the trade name Ritalin and is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (also known as ADHD) and narcolepsy.
On the morning of January 26, the helicopter flew into the smog and went to the Kobe Mamba College of Sports in Thousand Oaks to participate in a basketball game.
As they traveled through the fog, Zobayan quickly climbed into the clouds, then turned left and slammed into the hillside.
Federal authorities are still investigating the accident.
Other victims of the crash include Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife Keri and their daughter Alyssa; Christina Mao Christina Mauser, who helped Kobe as his daughter’s basketball team coach; Sarah Chester and daughter Payton.
Kobe Bryant has won 18 All-Stars, 5 NBA championships and 2 Finals MVPs during his 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers.
He will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame with 2020 veterans Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan.
