Border Patrol Agent Michael Barnes suffered a fatal heart attack while he and other agents attempted to apprehend 13 illegal immigrants. As the agents were returning to their vehicles the pilot of an assisting Border Patrol helicopter radioed that Agent Barnes was down. The other agents responded to his location and began to administer CPR. He was flown to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Agent Barnes had served with the Border Patrol for 20 years and was the agent in charge of the Carrizo Springs, Texas, Border Patrol Station. He is survived by his wife.

YOU WERE MY DAD'S BEST FRIEND. HE ALWAYS SPOKE OF YOU AFTER YOUR DEATH. I WISH I WOULD HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO THANK YOU IN PERSON FOR BEING A GREAT PERSON AND TAKING CARE OF MY DAD WHILE YOU TWO WERE ON PATROL. I KNOW YOU TWO ARE SOMEWHERE ON THE LINE NEAR CARRIZO JUST LIKE OLD TIMES.
