A California man saw basketball superstar Kobe Bryant's helicopter flying extremely low, 'struggling' before crashing into a southern California field shortly before 10am on Sunday.

The basketball star died along with his 13-year-old daughter and seven others on board.

An investigation by aviation authorities could take months, but the weather was expected to figure prominently in the cause of the crash.
