by at . Comments

Our hearts go out to The Hills star Heidi Montag and her family after a tragedy struck last week in her home state of Colorado.

Eric O'Hara, 24, the step-brother of Heidi Montag and a veteran of several U.S. combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, was killed in a bizarre accident at a hotel where he worked in Steamboat Springs.

Sad Heidi

O'Hara died Thursday at the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel in Steamboat Springs, slipping off a sloped roof while attempting to remove snow.

O'Hara's colonel in the Army's 82nd Airborne Division in Iraq, said, "Eric was the most remarkable young man he'd ever worked with, a born leader."

We're sorry for your loss, Heidi.
