Storm competed for Matt Grant's heart on season 12 of the ABC show back in 2008.

Upon hearing the tragic news, the former British suitor told ET:

"Massively shocked. Devastated for her family and friends. We were lucky to have Erin on season 12. She was genuine, self-assured, beautiful and hilarious."

He told NBC:

"All of a sudden, my partner started yelling, 'Watch out, there's a plane coming!' and it looked like the plane veered up, lost control and hit a couple feet away from the truck, a couple feet away from us."

Mayes recounted that he and his coworkers rushed over and pulled out Storm from the burning plane. According to him, her legs were on fire and she was in cardiac arrest when the rescue crews arrived.

Storm was transported to a trauma center where she was tragically pronounced dead.
