John Altobelli: Orange Coast College baseball coach killed with Kobe

Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli was among the victims of the helicopter crash that also killed Lakers legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna, Altobelli’s brother Tony Altobelli told CNN.

Altobelli’s daughter Alyssa and wife Keri were also aboard the helicopter.

LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told reporters that nine people were on board the aircraft—the pilot plus eight people. All nine have died.

The helicopter went down in the hills of Calabasas and a fire broke out. The crash occurred before 10 a.m. local time, and the fire made it difficult for firefighters and emergency personnel to get to the aircraft, according to the Los Angeles Times.
