Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Vanessa Bryant released a statement in support of Congressman Brad Sherman’s (D-Sherman Oaks) introduction of the “Kobe Bryant and Gianna Bryant Helicopter Safety Act.” The published statement is below:

“I strongly urge that the United States Congress pass a federal law that would improve the safety of helicopters operating in this country."

"I believe there is a chance that Kobe and Gianna would still be alive today if their helicopter had been equipped with the safety equipment required by this pending federal legislation."

"I believe that these safety measures will save many lives."

"As passengers traveling on aircrafts we assume that proper safety measures are in order to prevent accidents from happening before we fly. It's unfortunate that this is not the case and aircraft companies must do their part to protect lives.

"Having Kobe's and Gianna's names associated with this federal law that has the potential to save countless lives would be a fitting tribute to their memory.”
