Fire captain denies having shared, "It was horrifying," he said in reference to the photos he shared. 

The LA fire captain said he retired, in part, due to the mental anguish he experienced while at the site of the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant and his daughter.  

A retired Los Angeles fire captain dealt with the harrowing experience of photographing the site of Kobe Bryant's fatal helicopter crash in court Monday – while dodging accusations that he shared the pictures with others. 

Vanessa Bryant, widow of Kobe Bryant, is suing Los Angeles County over allegations that first responders shared images of the basketball legend's remains with others after his fatal helicopter crash in January 2020 

Brian Jordan, a former fire captain, took the stand on Monday. 

Jordan took graphic pictures of Bryant's remains, but says he was only doing what he was instructed to do by superiors. 

"I followed many instructions that day but was told ‘take pictures, take pictures, take pictures,'" Jordan testified to the court, according to TMZ.
