LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna will be remembered Monday with a public memorial service at Staples Center. Bryant, 41, and Gianna, 13, were on board a helicopter that crashed in the hills of Calabasas on Jan. 26. None of the nine people on board survived the crash.
More than 100,000 people signed up to buy tickets, which ranged from $24.02 to $224, but only 20,000 were made available for purchase through a lottery system. Streets and restaurants around the stadium will be closed and Staples Center says it will not broadcast the memorial service on its outdoor screens.
