SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A fake video claiming to show the helicopter crash that killed nine people including Kobe Bryant and his daughter is spreading across social media.
The fake video appears to show a helicopter spinning out of control before bursting into flames.
The footage is actually of a copter that clipped the Ras al-Khaimah wire near Dubai in 2018. The four crew members on board that helicopter were all killed in the fiery crash.
The unrelated footage is creating outrage promoting calls for the video to be taken down.
