About an hour and a half ago, authorities pulled Hill's body from Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans LA. Hill was 24 years old.
The 6-foot-6, 300-pound lineman was enjoying the holiday weekend with friends and family when the incident occurred. Hill and a female companion reportedly fell off their Jet ski in choppy waters in the lake. According to an AP report, the first call to authorities was at 9:30pm Sunday night. The female was rescued after a passer by heard her shouts for help. She reportedly was able to locate and cling to a structure (a piling).
According to a report from the Louisiana Times-Picayune, Hill's Patriot teammate Randall Gay, who also played football with the former LSU product in college, was on hand when the body was recovered.
Gay told the paper "I know it's going to be hard in that locker room seeing his locker.''
Details on where to send condolences have yet to be released. We will bring you additional details when available.
PatriotsInsider.com staff wish Hill's family and friends our sincerest condolences.
