Spoilers for "The Bachelorette" 2014 are coming in even though the show isn't airing yet. Eric Hill is one guy trying to win over Andi Dorfman this season. On Monday, Wet Paint shared news that he is now in critical condition after a paragliding accident. This also spoilers if he makes it to the end or not considering Andi is still filming.

Eric Hill's sister went to Facebook to share that her brother needs prayers. She said he was in a big paragliding accident that happened at Point of the Mountain in Draper, UT. Reality Steve shared the information on Twitter with fans of the show today.

An article on KUTV shares all of the information about the accident, but they left out his name. He had a partial collapse of his parachute while going down. He ended up hitting the side of the mountain before he fell down. He was found still breathing but unconscious. A friend who was watching said he was gliding too low. He is currently in a hospital in Utah for treatment. Hopefully more information will come out soon that he is doing great. Bachelor Nation is sending out prayers.

Reality Steve already shared that Eric Hill is the first guy to get a 1 on 1 date this season. He gets along great with Andi to start out with, but obviously it doesn't last. At this point, she is down to her final four and that means he doesn't make it that far because he is already home. He will be someone that fans get attached to though and you never know if he might end up on a future show in the franchise.

Don't miss "The Bachelorette" with Andi Dorfman when it airs this May on ABC. Fans will want to see if she can find love on reality TV. She is now looking for a new man since things didn't work out with Juan Pablo Galavis.

Update: In shocking news, Eric Hill has passed away.
