Eric Hill, a contestant on the upcoming season of The Bachelorette, was severely injured in a paragliding accident on Sunday and has passed away.
His sister Karen Tracy confirmed that Hill died via Facebook today:
"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."
"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!"
