At the beginning of the film Jurassic Park III, Ben took Eric Kirby on a parasailing tour to Isla Sorna with Enrique Cardoso and his partner. During their flight, the boat went through a cloud of ocean mist. When the boat emerged again, the boatman had disappeared. Ben unclipped themselves from their parasailing line, connecting them to the boat, just before it crashed on several large rocks. Ben and Eric were sent floating into the island. However, even with the perfect parasail, their rough landing in a tree left Ben to die.
When Dr. Grant, Billy, Udesky, Paul and Amanda find Eric's camera and Ben's corpse, Amanda didn't seem to be too concerned with his death and was more worried about Eric, her son.
