Eric Hill had been in a coma after suffering injuries in a paragliding accident in Utah on Sunday, according to People magazine, citing Hill's family.
"We are deeply saddened to hear about the tragic passing of our friend, Eric Hill," Warner Bros. Television, which produces the show for Walt Disney's ABC network, said in a statement.
"Eric inspired us every day with his passion, his courage and his adventurous spirit, and for that we are very thankful," the statement added.
Hill was injured after his parachute collapsed, People said. The magazine said he was 31.
In February 2013, Hill had begun an attempt to travel to every country in the world in fewer than 1,200 days. According to Hill's website, he had visited more than 25 countries.
Hill grew up in Citrus Heights, California, near Sacramento and graduated from Utah's Brigham Young University with a degree in human biology, his website said.
The upcoming season of "The Bachelorette," in which a woman chooses a possible husband from a group of 25 men, is set to air next month.
Wow... how very incredibly sad that this wonderful young man suffered from an accident that didn't need to happen. God bless him, and his family.
PRAYS TO THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS. SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS
Sorry....but death comes to ALL OF US.....it's just a matter of WHEN......He's accomplished whatever he came here to do or taught the lessons that he was supposed to teach..... & it was time to go.Now.....that said....my heart only goes out to family & friends who will miss him.He's in a better place than ANY OF US!
How do you know he's in a better place ? Have you been there ?
You never know.
This is so sad, so young. My condolences to his family
Dear God, My prayers go out to his family at this terrible time. I can't imagine the grief that they must be experiencing at this awful time. It reminds me that any moment we could lose a loved one. Life is so precious.........Eric had so much life to live, he seemed like he had a purpose driven life, with so many goals. To be gone at such a young age, is so sad. God knew this would happen, he knows every hair on our head, he even sees when a Sparrow falls to the ground. God loves Eric, we do not know His ways, we have to trust Him. To his family, may our Precious Lord help you as you are dealing with your grief.
Even though I am an Atheist I respect your comments and find them compassionate and genuine. I gave you a thumbs up for your heart. However, when I see something obviously wrong it wouldn't be genuine of me to not point it out. If "God knew this would happen" then he knows everything that will happen. If he knows everything that will happen then there is no free will. If there is no free will then there is no choice to be made in terms of belief or non belief in god.
Thanks for respecting the beliefs of others. In response to your thoughts, most Christians believe in free will and believe that God knows what choices will be made (He doesn't make them for you) and He knows the outcomes of those choices.
I Truly appreciate your comment and I too, can see that you are totally sincere. GOD does know the very moment that we are born and the moment that we will die, as well as everything we choose in our lives." It's just that because He is GOD, he knows everything...". He loves us enough to give us the total choice of what we choose to believe. Imagine a marriage, would you want your loved one to have to be forced to love you? I know that sounds very simplistic , but, we are made in His imagine. It takes Faith to believe ........... you can't see him as he is now, but He is always there. We can't see the wind, etc, but we know it is there. He still adores you, regardless of whether you believe in him or not, it also grieves him, that if you choose to turn away, and not Have the desire or Faith to seek him, than, you will live your life without him.Again, thank you for your kind comments, I'm so used to those who have no tolerance for another's beliefs, it's refreshing to have someone speak with kindness regarding what their convictions are.Take care.............
If belief or non belief is predetermined then there is no point to the heaven or hell proposition.
No, no, so wrong......anyone can always turn from their ways, or stay the way they are, we are not programmed like robots, rather it's just a way of acknowledging the fact that GOD knows from the beginning who will do this or who will do that, whether we will live ours lives according to His will or decide we don't want to accept him. He's a Loving God.........only wants the best for us, I know that description as been abused by many, it is true, we are predestined....... but not in any other way except to make the same point.....God knows what everyone will "Choose" in life from start to end and He will not take our right to choose away from us. But he'll never change, He will always be a just, Loving Father to each of us.
my heart goes out to his family,so sad gone too soon
People who engage in dangerous sports have to know they may not survive so they live the way they wish and if truth be known, they would probably rather die in the same way. It is sad but he lived more than most in his 32 years. He did it "his way" so his life should be celebrated for who he was and not his tragic end. Of course, it does not make it easier on his family because they will grieve for him and will miss him forever.
Very sad any time a young man dies at his age. Condolences to his family and friends.
This is so sad! My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
