NBA legend Kobe Bryant made the fatal decision to move his helicopter flight 45 minutes earlier the night before before the crash, reports the Daily Mail.
According to this news outlet Kobe asked his personal assistant Cate Brady to reschedule the flight from 9.45am to 9am the night before the crash so he could watch an earlier basketball game.
Brady, who has worked for the Bryant family since May 2019, told crash investigators:
‘That particular day, for Sunday, I actually changed the time the night before, probably around 6:00 or 7:00p.m., because Bryant had decided he wanted to go to watch another team play before his game. So it was supposed to be a 9:45 departure, but the night before we changed it to a 9:00a.m. departure.’
The helicopter crashed just before 10am, but 45 minutes later, the fog started to lift and the hillside was more visible.
