Sad news

Monday, November 05, 2012

A U.S. Border Patrol Agent assigned the area of Big Bend National Park died while on duty this past Friday, November 2. There was a tremendous inter-agency rescue attempt, involving the local EMS, Border Patrol, National Park Service, and county sheriff's police, but they weren't able to save him. He was out on a routine foot patrol to check on some camera equipment, in extremely rough and isolated terrain just outside the National Park, and suffered some sort of medical emergency, possibly a heart attack or an allergic reaction. Because of the location, no one could reach him in time to help.

His name was David Delaney. He was 44 years old, and he leaves behind a wife and three children all under the age of five. If anyone would like to help, a fund has been established for the family.
