On Sunday, January 26th, 2020 the world grieved at the sudden death of NBA legend Kobe Bryant. He was in a helicopter crash with his daughter, Gianna Bryant and eight others who all passed away at the scene.

With the tragic deaths that occurred, San Fernando Valley Representative Brad Sherman is taking massive actions to assure that accidents like this are avoided.

According to The Source, Sherman plans to introduce a bill called the Kobe Bryant and Gianna Bryant Helicopter Safety Act. The bill will assure that all helicopters have a terrain-safety system which was not present in the helicopter that Bryant was on.

The terrain-safety system can range between $25,000-$40,000 per helicopter. The system is set in place to give “detailed image of surrounding terrain and trigger auditory and visual warnings”.

Although it will not stop a crash from happening, it will play a huge part in the preventive measure.
