The Hills star Heidi Montag‘s 24-year-old stepbrother, Eric O’Hara, a veteran of several combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, has lost his life in a bizarre accident at the Colorado hotel where he worked, the Rocky Mountain News. O’Hara died Thursday at the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel in Steamboat Springs, after he slipped off a sloped roof while attempting to remove snow. “Having made it through 15 months in Iraq, and then to have this happen,” said his uncle, Dave Patston, “it’s really tough.”
