Last Sunday, basketball star Kobe Bryant’s helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California. The families of the victims are now saying who else was with him.

The crash killed him, his daughter, a basketball coach, a baseball coach, his wife, his daughter, another mother, her daughter, and the pilot.

Everyone was headed to a basketball tournament in Thousand Oaks, California; the three daughters were basketball teammates.

The basketball coach had a husband and three children, and the baseball coach and his wife also had a son and a daughter.

Difficult words: head (to start to go somewhere), tournament (many games or competitions to find out who is the best), teammate (a person who plays on a team in a sport).
