Is the NTSB paying extra attention to the Kobe Bryant crash — Not yet

The January 26, 2020 helicopter crash in Calabasas, CA that took the life of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven others was both shocking and unexpected. Later that day, before the general public could fully grasp the magnitude of what had happened, the NTSB, which is the US government agency responsible for investigating accidents involving air transportation, initiated a major investigation that included a team of 18 experts who were dispatched to the crash site.
