The Los Angeles County Fire Department will reportedly fire two firefighters for their role in sharing the graphic photos from Kobe Bryant’s death.
The Los Angeles County Fire Department will reportedly fire two firefighters and suspend a third employee for alleging snapping photos of the helicopter crash site that killed Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna Bryant and seven others, according to Fox News.
- The firefighters reportedly shared the photos with their girlfriends and wives.
What firefighters did with Kobe Bryant crash photos
Per NBC Los Angeles, court documents filed in an ongoing lawsuit between Vanessa Bryant and Los Angeles County listed the information that the firefighters shared the images. Those firefighters were not named in the lawsuit.
- However, the court documents said the firefighters were given “intention to discharge” letters in December 2020, according to NBC Los Angeles. The firefighters allegedly sent photos to a third firefighter, who then shared the photos with off-duty firefighters at the time.
Vanessa Bryant shares names of officers
Back in March, Vanessa Bryant revealed the names of four deputies who allegedly took graphic photos of Kobe Bryant’s crash site and later shared them with others, as I wrote for the Deseret News. The information was included in an amended complaint added to the case back in March, CNN reported.
- The new complaint suggests that deputy Joey Cruz “boasted that he had worked at the scene of the accident where Kobe Bryant had died” and shared those photos with a bartender.
- The bartender then allegedly told customers what he had seen. One of the customers called the entire incident “very, very disturbing,” as I explained for the Deseret News.
