When Kobe Bryant’s helicopter crash occurred, the first responders did some pretty disturbing things. They took pictures of the aftermath.
Kobe’s Widow Vanessa Bryant, is currently suing Los Angeles County and agencies run by that government over the photos, for negligence, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. In documents related to the lawsuit filed this week, we now are learning of just how awful some of the first responders were.
Documents say “close-up photos of Gianna and Kobe’s remains were passed around [to] at least 28 LASD devices and by at least a dozen firefighters.”
Tony Imbrenda, a county fire department public information officer, was showing the photos to firefighters and others at a gala celebrating first responders.
According to the Washington Post, one attendee said:
“I just saw Kobe’s body all burnt up before I’m about to eat.”

Sheriff’s Department Deputy Joey Cruz showed photos to a bartender, and that bartender filed a citizen’s complaint in February 2020.
“These deputies and firefighters took the worst thing that has ever happened to me — the worst thing that could happen to any mother or spouse — and made it worse,” Bryant said in the filing. “I will never be able to shake the anguish from knowing that the officials who are supposed to keep us safe treated Kobe and Gianna with such callous disrespect. For the rest of my life, one of two things will happen: either close-up photos of my husband’s and daughter’s bodies will go viral online, or I will continue to live in fear of that happening.”
Bryant alleges that she’s being “taunted online threatening to leak the photos.”
No one who took or distributed the pics faced any discipline, because they weren’t “publicly disseminated.”
Sad that people were sick enough to take photos of Kobe and the rest of the passengers.
Publicly shared or not, they should be punished.
Praying Vanessa and her children will never have to see any of these pics show up on the internet.
