The world was stunned Wednesday after Bachelorette contestant 32-year-old Eric Hill died after a paragliding accident in Utah after his parachute partially collapsed, sending him into the mountainside”
Sadly Eric Hill has died in a paragliding accident in Utah today
Little was known about the Utah resident until the accident occurred. Interestingly, he was actually friends with fellow Bachelorette contestant Brooks Forester.
We knew that Eric was Mormon, had 4 brothers and 1 sister and was originally from Citrus Heights, California and that he graduated from Brigham Young University in 2005 with a B.S. in Human Biology.
We also knew that he was in the midst of filming a documentary, “The Global Odyssey”, where he was trying to travel to all 195 U.N. recognized countries by 2016.
Eric was most certainly an adventurer and a daredevil of epic proportions. He had been paragliding and base jumping all over the world and the U.S..
So since his tragic death fans have been scrambling to find some video of Eric to get to know him a little better. We found a few videos from last year that may shed some light on his personality….
Here is another….
Funeral Services for Eric Hill were held Saturday, April 26th in Salt Lake City.
Here is more about his base jumping adventures around the world.
It remains to be seen how ABC will handle this difficult situation
