“Eric shared his final journey with us this morning as all his immediate family were able to be at his side when he passed away,” she wrote after his death. “Thank you to all of your love and support and prayers and fasting. It was amazing to be with so many of his friends and family yesterday in the hospital who came to express their love for Eric.”

“He gave us such a gift of a life fully lived and fully shared, and allowed us all to be a part of his last adventure here on earth,” she continued. “It is hard to think of life without his bright spark, but we know he is on to new adventures. We look forward to carrying on his legacy here and greeting him joyfully again someday. I love you so much, little brother!” source

Hill, one of Andi Dorfman‘s potential suitors on the upcoming season of ABC’s reality series, was hospitalized in critical condition after part of his parachute collapsed while he was paragliding in Utah on Sunday. A rescue team was called to the scene, and he was transported by helicopter to a local hospital, where he remained in a medically induced coma until Wednesday. The accident occurred post-Bachelorette; he had apparently already been eliminated from the show.
