Two coaches and five others died alongside Kobe Bryant and his daughter when their helicopter crashed Sunday morning have been named.

Initial reports claimed five people had been killed, but the death toll was raised to nine - including the pilot, named locally as Ara Zobayan. Among those also killed was John Altobelli, a baseball coach at Orange County College, his wife Keri and daughter Alyssa.

Girls basketball coach Christina Mauser was also killed in the crash.

The cause of the crash is under investigation but the control tower at Burbank Airport was contacted by the pilot shortly before 10am local time. At around 9:40 AM the helicoter turned south, towards a mountainous area, flight tracker data shows. Five minutes later it hit the hillside at 1700 feet, near the home of Kourtney Kardashian.

In air traffic control audio taken shortly before the crash the pilot is told he is 'too low' for radar tracking although this does not appear to be part of a mayday or distress call. The pilot appears to be getting guidance through the bad weather before the unfortunate crash.
