The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner Coroner’s office announced on Tuesday that all nine bodies, including Kobe and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, had been recovered from the scene.

The chilling video shows the NTSB investigators launching a drone to fly over the scene, which was described by a spokesperson as spanning 500 to 600 ft.

An aerial view shows the helicopter debris scattered on the ground at the mountain side where the Lakers legend’s crash happened shortly before 10 a.m. on January 26.

The video also shows men wearing protective gloves and masks as they stood in the middle of the debris.
