13-year-old fan may have taken the last known photo of Kobe Bryant at the Mamba Sports Academy

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (KABC) -- A 13-year-old fan took what may be the last photo of Kobe Bryant, just a day before the athlete's death.

The photo was taken by Brady Smigiel at the Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, just a day before the helicopter crash that claimed the lives of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and 7 others.

The young fan had no idea that the blurry selfie he took with his idol would be the last known photo of the late athlete.
Smigel played in the same basketball tournament as Kobe's daughter Gianna.
