2 Border Patrol Agents Injured in Boat Collision Near U.S-Mexico Border

By Steve Neavling

Two Border Patrol agents were injured Sunday evening when their agency boat and another boat collided on the Rio Grande outside of Anzaldaus Park in Mission, Texas, KRGV reports. 

Both agents were taken to the hospital, one by air, one by ambulance.

“First is the agents’ safety. We want to make sure they’re okay. We want to make sure they have medical attention,” said Chris Cabrera, Border Patrol Union Vice President. Obviously we have some already in the hospital. We want to make sure any injuries that haven’t come up yet get attended to. The other thing is their mental well being….make sure they have somebody to talk to if  need be. Service is really good at making sure the agents have somebody to talk to. However sometimes the agents don’t want to let their guard down until they get around their peers so sometimes we talk to them and make sure they’re ok in that aspect.”

A Border Patrol spokesman said more information will become available Monday.

Alcohol Played Role in Boat Crash That Killed 2 FBI Employees Near Cincinnati

By Steve Neavling

Alcohol played a role in a boat crash that killed two FBI employees on the Ohio River near Cincinnati in September, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The off-duty employees, Bryce Eastlick, 28, and John Stack II, 29, were killed after their 19-foot boat smashed into a massive barge on Sept. 25.

“The toxicology report did confirm that it was alcohol related,” an official at the coroner’s office said Wednesday.

The coroner didn’t divulge details, such as the men’s blood alcohol content.

The men were dead when rescuers arrived and likely died on impact.

“I don’t believe there was any suffering,” Cincinnati District Fire Chief Lou Arnold said.
