On Sunday, Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna were in a horrific helicopter crash that killed everyone on board. All 9 victims have been identified, and authorities are working to uncover the details of the crash.

At a briefing on Tuesday, officials revealed that the helicopter crashed into a foggy mountain near Calabasas, California. The helicopter had climbed to about 2,300 feet before lowering at a rate of about 23 miles per hour.

The helicopter may have missed the clearing at the top of the mountain by a mere 20 to 30 feet, according to the New York Times.

The crash, which happened on the day of the GRAMMY Awards, sparked a series of tributes to the late basketball legend. Alicia Keys opened the ceremony with a song in Kobe Bryant’s honor alongside Boyz II Men, while many other celebrities flooded to social media to share their condolences.
